"There has been a tremendous outpouring of support for this memorial, as well as great care and effort into every detail," said Natrona County Library Executive Director Lisa Scroggins. "This area has now become a beautiful and peaceful place to stop and give pause for remembrance." The seal of each military branch is inscribed on the bench.
The ceremony will include remarks by Edgerton Mayor H.H. "Buck" King and Natrona County Library Executive Director Lisa Scroggins. Light snacks and beverages will be provided.
The memorial bench and flagpole were made possible by H. H. "Buck" King, the Town of Edgerton, Wyoming Community Gas, Rocky Mountain Power, and the Natrona County Library.
