Backstory and Context
This monument serves as a reminder of not just those who sacrificed, but those in the area that were either drafted or made the sacrifice with their own will. The people of Nebraska have large hearts, helpings hands and raw strength with farming and cropping being the most vital occupations the state is founds upon. I am a proud past resident of the town of Valentine, which is where this monument set. It is beautiful and was strategically placed on Main Street for everyone who comes through to see. And for those with family that went through WWI, WWII, Korean and Cold War will all appreciate this.
