Erected to Men and Women Now Serving in the U. S. Armed Forces From Akron and Surrounding Territory

Pictured above is Akron’s fine new Honor Roll, which was recently erected on the lawn just north of the City Hall building.  Appearing on the Honor Roll are the names of men and women from Akron and vicinity who are now serving in the armed forces of the United States.  Additional names will be placed thereon as more from this territory are inducted into the service.  The Akron Honor Roll was made possible through the generous contributions provided by the public.  The project was sponsored by Hoschler Post, No. 186, of the American Legion; the Akron Commercial Club and the Town of Akron.  Mr. Fred Reinders, of Hospers, Iowa, designed and executed the artistic war scenes which adorn the Honor Roll.  At night the Honor Roll is illuminated by a bank of concealed flood-lights, giving a very pleasing effect.  Following is a list of persons from this territory who have been honored by having their names placed on Akron’s Honor Roll:
