Westbrook, ME ~ Spanish American War Honor Roll for Veteran's Day 2014

I am pleased once again to join in documenting the many ignored and forgotten Honor Roll memorials scattered around the country. Each Memorial Day and Veteran's Day, we try to find Honor Roll monuments and plaques around the country. We transcribe the names in a blog post, thereby making the names searchable by most internet search engines, like Google and Mocavo.

In so doing, we provide a hint for genealogists and famiy historians searching for ancestors on the internet, and give them a glimpse into the military heritage of their family.

Stop by Heather Wilkinson Rojo's blog, Nutfield Genealogy, on Veteran's Day, November 11th, to see all the participants' posts so far.

My Veteran's Day Honor Roll for 2014 is located in Riverbank Park, in Westbrook, Maine.

I discovered it in the annual wall calendar of the Maine Veterans Homes, which I receive in the mail because my father passed away at the MVH in Scarborough in 2010. Each month features a beautiful picture of a veterans memorial, and this one in Westbrook seemed somewhat unique.

As you can see above, the names are listed in three columns. I will not try to replicate this, but, instead present a list, separated by rank, of the entire company.
