Mc Roberts War Memorial

About

I am married to David Sergent and co chair of this site. We have had a wonderful time meeting people and discovering our history. I am thankful for each person who helps us with this major undertaking. To remember who we are as a people instead of what they say that we are.

A Place of Honor

Written by Joanna Adams Sergent

In the Middle of the square in the little town of Mc Roberts, Kentucky stands a place of honor.   Beautifully set in a place of quiet repose, there are rose bushes surrounding the monument.  World War I, War War II, Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Persian Gulf, Operation Iraq Freedom and Afghanistan are represented on the Memorial.   Each name upon the solid white marble monument represents a man or woman who served with honor and distinction for our Country.

The Monument was erected by the United Mine Workers of America, Local Union Number 6281, District Number 30, in Mc Roberts, Kentucky.   Three sides of the bottom of the Monument says: Virtue, Liberty and  Patriotism.  There are four flags surrounding the site which represents the four Armed Services: U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps., U.S. Air Force, and the U.S. Army.

 

We at Kentucky Tennessee Living would love to thank each man and woman for their service to our Armed Services and would like to continue to thank those that continue to serve to this day.   Thank you for our freedom, thank you for holding the wall while we sleep at night.  Thank you for the honor that you give to our Country.   ~~ Kentucky Tennessee Living.
