During the American wars of the 20th Century, close to 900 West Rutland men and women served their country. Incredibly, only 15 lost their lives in military action. This year, the town will honor the KIAs with a display of banners to be installed along Main Street. The banners, created by Awesome Graphics, are a gift from the WWII committee that created the monument on the Town Hall green. The banners will be installed in time for Memorial Day, which we will again celebrate with a parade, after a two-year pause for Covid. In addition to the banners, a commemorative booklet will feature a photograph of each soldier, with a summary of biographical information. These booklets will be available at no cost and can be picked up at the Town Hall any time after Memorial Day.
