Fallen Soldier Memorial
Many of you may have already
noticed the POW/MIA table and chair has been
relocated in the bar area of the Post where it
is far more visible. You may have also noticed a
new stand with a pair of combat boots, weapon,
dog tags, and helmet displayed next to it. This
is the new Post 58 Fallen Soldier Memorial.
Its purpose is to show honor
and respect for the dead at a battle site. This
practice started during the American Civil War
or maybe earlier, as a means of identifying the
bodies on the battleground before they were
removed. Today, it is an immediate means of
showing respect for the dead among the still
living members of the troop. It might be seen in
the field or base camp after the battle in
Afghanistan or Iraq. Used less today as a means
to identify the dead but more as a private
ceremony among those still living to mourn,
because attending a funeral is not always
possible, for soldiers still in the fight.
Post 58 would like to thank ALR’s Lee Norman,
John Weedo, Neil Lyons, Dutch Gottschalk, and
Robert Jaworski who developed the idea and saw
it through to completion. The Memorial was
dedicated on May 7, 2016.
