It will happen at the Hamilton-Nauvoo junction this Sunday at 1 p.m. Hancock County Hometown Heroes is engraved across the top of the five foot black granite monument.

The idea for the monument began with VFW Post #5256 at Hamilton. Several discussions were held with veterans and members of the community as to what the monument could look like. In case of rain, the events will be held at the Hamilton VFW post.
