Comments re article 48461 BJ Hagy wonders about bronze plaque in the courthouse

Mike Watson writes:
The Veterans Honor Board is still hanging in the same place in the Courthouse hallway. It is a large, oak frame with two glass doors. Names of Adair County World War II men and women are in white letters on a black felt background. The accompanying photo does not really do justice, but was the only one I have showing the entire board. - MW
Thanks, Mike Watson: Maybe it took the installation of the Dakota Meyer sign to really bring out all the significance of the Adair County Court House to the great military service tradition of Adair County, and how important it is to save the courthouse, if just for the veterans. The cost of our efforts to preserve it pales in comparison to what they done - but preserving the courthouse to honor their service is one of the least things we can do. Thanks for your work preserving the memory of Adair County veterans. -EW

Mike Watson writes: A second photo of the WWII Veterans Honor Board in the hallway of the Historic Adair County Courthouse - a closeup of some names. This section contains the names of our father and two of his three brothers who served--a Four Star Family: Carl Watson, Cameron Allen Watson and William Milton Watson appear on the list, James Hugh Watson doesn't, for some reason. -MIKE WATSON
