California-Jamestown Area Veterans Memorial
California Progress, Inc. (CPI) is soliciting funds and names for a Veterans Memorial as part of the Latham Memorial Family Park in California. The park being developed is the former site of the Latham Hospital. The requirement to have a name on the memorial is for the veteran to have lived in Walker Township (California, McGirk areas) or Linn Township (Jamestown, Lupus, Sandy Hook areas) of Moniteau County at some point in their life and not be an active service member. CPI has decided to not include active service members at this time.
This page lists the 3,110 names submitted to the engravers and information about how to submit a name for future inclusion on the memorial. As of September 9, 2021 names are being compiled as future additions to the memorial.
