Memorial Day Services at Cambridge Cemetery

Veterans Memorial in Cambridge, Iowa Cemetery
The list of Cambridge, Iowa veterans we are preparing was used to create a list of veterans buried in the Cambridge Cemetery for the American Legion Memorial Day services on May 25, 2009. A printable copy of this flyer (PDF) can be downloaded here.

An updated version of the list is being prepared for the Legion. A list by location in the cemetery is also being prepared for the American Legion Auxiliary to assist with the American flags they provide at the veterans graves.

Thank you to Julie Erickson, Joyce Williams, Florence Wheeler, and Wayne Messer for creating this list. Also, thank you to the members of the community for information on the veterans. Please let us know of other additions and corrections.
