Remembering Those Who Gave the Ultimate Sacrifice; Veterans Memorial Wall in Logansport

The Veterans Memorial Wall in Logansport is located on the South end of the park, on a hill, very near the Sabine River Bridge. After much talk and many prayers the Town of Logansport and the Gordon Cohen American Legion Post 157/ Logansport Veteran’ Club of Logansport made a commitment to honor all of our military men and women. This was done with a standing memorial in the Town’s park so that all of our people could see the names of the many veterans that have served our country so faithfully. The wall was dedicated during a ceremony at the site on July 4th, 1998. The late Mayor Dennis Freeman was the Master of Ceremony. The guest speaker for the ceremonies was the late Lieutenant General Orren R. Whiddon, a native of Joaquin, Texas. General Whiddon was Commanding General of the Second United States Army at the time of his retirement in 1990. Many other dignitaries too numerous to mention here were present to honor our veterans.
