Memorial Day Honor Roll Project: Pocahontas, Virginia

Heather Wilkinson Rojo, in her Nutfield Genealogy blog, has organized the Honor Roll Project.  On Memorial Day and Veteran's Day, bloggers are encouraged to photograph and transcribe war memorials and honor rolls, making them available on the Internet for relatives (and others!) to find.  Please visit her Honor Roll Project at http://nutfieldgenealogy.blogspot.com/p/honor-roll-project.html

My "local" war memorial, the Virginia War Memorial in Richmond, Virginia, is pretty well documented.  Instead, I will feature the memorial in the coal mining town of Pocahontas, Virginia, located in Tazewell County.  The Roll of Honor commemorates local soldiers who fought in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.  The list is primarily those who fought; the World War II section includes stars by the names of those who gave their lives in service.
