We have the distinguished honor to be the home base of two Metal of Honor recipients, one of the few if not only, small towns in the United States to have this privilege. Sergeant Ellis Weicht was killed during World War II, and Sergeant Robert Hartsock was killed during the Vietnam conflict. Thus far the men have been honored by having the two bridges in town dedicated to their memory. The members of the Everett Lions Club feel that more needs to be done to honor these brave Americans. In today’s culture we need to recognize our veterans, and in particular, those who never came home.
Our plan is to construct and preserve for the future, a greater than life-sized bronze monument in the middle of our small town, featuring both soldiers in the Military era attire, greeting each other. Visit this page often for updates, progress reports, videos, and other information related to the monument project. Meanwhile, if you feel you can contribute in any way to this cause through donations, advocacy, or otherwise, please contact us.
