Plaque Dedication Ceremony For WWI Veterans

The City of Mishawaka is conducting a brief plaque unveiling and dedication ceremony at Mishawaka City Hall 600 E Third Street, on Sunday, November 11, at 4:00 PM to commemorate those Mishawaka veterans who lost their lives in World War One.

November 11 is not only Veteran’s Day, but it also marks the 100th anniversary since stillness fell across the battlefields of Europe on the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 to end World War One. To commemorate the end of World War One, President Woodrow Wilson officially recognized November 11 as Armistice Day. So, it is fitting that on this day we recognize and honor those individuals from Mishawaka who made the ultimate sacrifice in World War One to defend our country.

The plaque to be unveiled and dedicated contains the list of the names of Mishawaka citizens who answered the call of duty and perished in what was initially known as the Great War. With the addition of this plaque, we will have memorialized all the known veterans from Mishawaka who sacrificed their lives in the service of the country. The plaque will be located in the lobby area of Mishawaka City Hall along with the other memorial plaques.

The public is invited to attend this dedication ceremony.
