Wall of Honor dedicated to local vets

Over two years ago the members of the Ladies Auxiliary at the American Legion Post in Peebles began working on a project to honor local veterans in the Peebles, Locust Grove, and Sinking Spring areas. They have transformed the once drab front hall of the legion into a gallery featuring 8 x 10 photographs of local men and women who served in the armed forces.

“We wanted to do something special to honor our local veterans,” said club President Jeanie Edwards. “We had the space, and we wanted it to reflect our appreciation of the service and sacrifices these men and women made for all of us.”

Over 150 photographs of servicemen from WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Bosnia, and the Iraq and Afghanistan wars surround the front hall. Veterans who served in peace time are also included in the display. A special section was set aside to honor those who were killed in action.

“The project will never be finished,” said Auxiliary member Susie Robinson. “As the years go by we’ll add more photographs. It’s important that people know the gallery is here, and that they can bring photos of their loved ones to hang here with others who have served.”

The Ladies Auxiliary in Peebles is an active organization whose members work to improve their community. Each year they serve a free Christmas Dinner for veterans and their families in the front hall of the legion. They also give a yearly scholarship to a local graduating senior, donate to different organizations, sponsor local little league teams, and donate to local high school sports teams.
