NEW- VETERANS – 2013

I have always felt the greatest admiration for the veterans, and their families, who gave their lives for this country. I dedicate this page to them. I have serched and gathered this information on some of the veterans who were from Indianola and the surrounding area. If you can help me add to this page I would be very grateful. I have added a picture, then information and a picture of their stone if I could find it.
