A memorial reborn

Work to rebuild the War Memorial at the Ozaukee County Justice Center in Port Washington (top photo) was recently completed. Visitors are greeted by an engraved stone that pays tribute to county soldiers killed in the line of duty since World War I (left photo), while other stones have the names of the war dead engraved on them (lower left). As part of the project, the names of three area soldiers were added to the memorial. The $90,000 project was paid for in part by donations from veterans groups. Sheriff Jim Johnson, a member of the memorial committee and the Van Ells-Schanen American Legion in Port (center, lower right photo), received donations from (from left) Jerry Keller of the Belgium American Legion, Denise Jamrozy of the Landt-Thiel American Legion in Saukville, Ozaukee County Veterans Service Officer Kevin Johnson and Al Richards of the Rose-Harms American Legion in Grafton.
