Ceremony to honor Korean War vets, dedicate cross

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 or call Daryl Tabor at 270.704.6402 to register. If possible, we would like a photo and some details about each veteran.
