Honoring Golden’s War Heroes

Rick Gardner has been dutifully tracking down and sharing the stories of Golden’s own who have died defending the United States in conflicts as far back as World War I. It’s an important project and I appreciate his taking the time to do it. Here are some links you might find worthwhile:

The Colorado Freedom Memorial.

A list of all Golden’s known wartime casualties.

Profiles of three Great War casualties, and profiles of three others from the same conflict.

A profile of our sailor lost at Pearl Harbor.

Profiles of our five World War II casualties.

Rick’s plan, after finishing the rest of the profiles, is to create a permanent memorial website for them at goldenlandmarks.com.
