Memorial will honor county’s World War II dead

-A A +A
By Randy Patrick

Nelson Countians who gave their lives in World War II will be honored with a granite memorial on the east side of Court Square listing the names of the 76 known to have served and died. And there will be space for more names if any are discovered.

County Judge-Executive Dean Watts has worked with Dr. Harry Spalding, former Bardstown mayor and local military historian, and American Legion Post 121 on the project.

Except for a listing in The Kentucky Standard in 1946, Watts said there is no place he knows of in the county where those names are listed.
