Honoring the Vets
Veterans' Information



Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget
A WW2 Vet Remembering

Mt Zion Historical Park Vets Walkway

American Legion logo




Bennett's Valley citizens have served in all of our American conflicts since coming to the Valley (and before). These include the War of 1812, Civil War, World War 1, World War 2, Korean Conflict, Vietnam, and current day conflicts.

The Mt Zion Historical Society and the American Legion Post 978 initiated this special project to fulfill its mission. The Veteran's Memorial and Walkway are our outward sign of honoring our Bennett's Valley veterans. The Society and American Legion Post 978 are compiling information on all veterans of Jay and Benezette townships (whoever was either born, buried, or died while residing in either of these two townships). We could use your help in completion of this list. If you have any information to contribute please email us .

Please help us complete the vets' list.


To honor your favorite veteran, you can order walkway bricks. Please print out and complete the linked application and mail in.
