World War I Memorial Unveiled in Dunmore

DUNMORE -- A memorial unveiled in Lackawanna County Saturday honored those who made the ultimate sacrifice during World War I.

Etched into the memorial in Dunmore are the names of 262 veterans from Lackawanna County.

"It makes you feel proud, and you're not alone. Everybody's together. It's just a wonderful thing," said Thomas Coar of Scranton.

The new memorial is located at South Blakely and Cherry Streets in Dunmore.

    Can we all please use our minds? Let’s do right by other Americans by stopping not just the over taxation but the system that does not serve the majority of law abiding citizens. Small government is the best government because it does not funnel gains to the dimwits that care less about community and more for themselves. Unjustified rules not only equal less freedom but contempt within the base class that only made our freedoms completely possible to enjoy at all. E pluribus unum- out of many, we have one. When you give those freedoms away, you are left with ruined dreams under the ashes from the fires that you’ve helped to light. Your entrance into tomorrow will not be a failure, if you make it that far.
