Information

Title

Washington Township Eastern District World War I Honor Roll (PA)

Description

The Washington Township Eastern District World War I Honor Roll plaque is affixed to a rough-cut granite stele. It lists the names of 34 residents who served in the war, including three who lost their lives (denoted by a star). The names are listed alphabetically and do not include rank.

Except for the names, the plaque is the exact counterpart of the Washington Township Western District Honor Roll plaque at Slatedale. The plaque features at top the relief of an eagle with outstretched wings.

One of the names listed, Clarence Bentz, is the grandfather of Kris Smith, the person who submitted this (and many other) Pennsylvania memorials to the World War I Memorial Inventory Project.

The date of the memorial is unknown. It sits on the grounds of the Emerald Fire Company.
