Groundbreaking ceremonies for the Company F monument were recently held with Assemblyman Steve Hawley, Cathy Fox, Anne McElwee and Senator George Maziarz breaking ground while coordinator Bill Menz and Orleans County Veterans look on. The “prototype” Pentagonal monument on display (left) was an early model for the design. The actual monument will be made of Medina Sandstone and stand over 8′ tall. Bronze plaques will be mounted on each side containing Company F rosters from the Spanish- American war, Mexican-American War, World War I & World War II. The 5th side will include a dedication to Company C.

The World War II Company F Roster (left) will be printed and distributed to local veteran’s clubs & offices. We are still researching the accuracy of the data and look to Company F veterans and their family & friends to provide feedback.
