On Sunday, Nov. 13, Crittenden County Historical Society and American Legion Post 111 will join together to honor the men of The Forgotten War and dedicate a cross at the Mapleview Cemetery War Memorial to a forgotten local man, Junior Raymond “J.R.” McDowell, who died as a POW in that war. Crittenden County native Gen. Scott A. Campbell will be the featured speaker. The program is tentatively set for 2 p.m.
All local Korean War veterans and their spouses or widows of Korean War veterans are invited to be recognized. If you plan to attend, please email CrittendenHistoricalSociety@gmail.com or call Daryl Tabor at 270.704.6402 to register. If possible, we would like a photo and some details about each veteran.
