WORLD WAR II
HONOR ROLL
The original World War II Honor Roll monument was erected by the Wentzville Community Club in 1944 at their pavilion on Pearce Boulevard to honor the men and women from Wentzville who served in the war. In 1963, when the property was sold, the monument was disassembled. Now at last, the Historical Society, with the help of the Wentzville Community Club and other individuals and organizations, is proud to re-create it, once again honoring those who made sacrifices for our freedom.

History of Mark:
THE WORLD WILL LONG REMEMBER WHAT THE DID

The memorial lists all the names of those who served from this community in World War II. In the center of the memorial, under a Gold Star, are the ones who gave their lives in the struggle
