Veteran’s Day

Estimated reading time: 1 minute, 17 seconds

I wasn’t prepared with a post for today. Heather Wilkinson Rojo, over at Nutfield Genealogy, also posting on Google+, challenged other bloggers to post transcriptions of the names on local war memorials. I went out and took more pictures of the memorials in Kearns. I didn’t realize I already had a picture of all the names on the memorial from August; I wanted to be sure I got them all.

There are several memorials together at the corner where the “Welcome to Kearns” sign stands.
