Last call for Caraway veterans' names for monument

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

The Caraway Veterans' Committee and volunteers have been working hard to raise money to place a veterans' monument at the Caraway Cemetery.

Shirley Redding said it is almost time to submit names of veterans.

"We want all veterans recognized and we have made a great effort to compile the names of the men and women from Caraway who have served our country," Redding said. "So far we have 686 names. We also want to know about any special honors."

Names will be submitted in two weeks and if anyone has a Caraway veteran's name to be placed on the monument contact Redding at (870) 482-3367.

"This will be a monument in honor/memory of all Caraway veterans," she said. "We are hoping to have it ready for a special dedication ceremony on Memorial Day 2014."
