FISHERSVILLE — A monument now stands to memorialize a part of Augusta County’s history that is disappearing as fast as the generation which created that history.
Community members gathered at noon Monday near Valley Career and Technical Center to remember soldiers who were treated at Woodrow Wilson General Hospital during World War II.
“It’s the sacrifice of all those people that allows us to enjoy the freedoms of today,” Guest speaker Del. Richard P. “Dickie” Bell said. He added that he believes the public has begun to take our freedoms for granted, and that is why Memorial Day was chosen as the day to dedicate a monument for an institution that was a part of the community.
