Adair County's forgotten war dead
The approach of Veteran's Day in general, and this photo in particular serve as reminder that the names of nine men who either were Adair natives or residents of the county at the time of enlistment don't appear on the war memorial marker.
These forgotten nine are:
World War One
The December 1945 date was extended for those men serving tours of duty in the occupied nations, thus names of Pfc. Joseph Elmo Cooley and Cpl. Roy Franklin, each of whom was killed in a vehicular accident in 1949 while serving in Occupied Japan and Occupied Germany, respectively, appear on the tablet. One Adair County soldier, James Henry Todd, died in a vehicular accident after the issuance of the May 1941 proclamation but before declaration of war; his name too rightly appears.
