Louisa, KY -- For the last couple of years, the local Veterans Association has been meeting in the former Sheriff's Office, located in the old part of of the Lawrence County Courthouse in downtown Louisa. Recently, when the Heritage Hallway was incorporated into the lobby of the building, displaying historical documents and artifacts, it was decided that the opposite end of the hallway would be dedicated to local veterans.
WW II Flag
The area was named 'Veterans Memorial Hallway,' and Thursday, May 8, a couple of local veterans were on site to take part in the dedication. Joe Robinette, of Ft. Gay, WV, and Commander of the Wayne Co. VFW, served in the Army during the Korean War. Don Wolfe, of Ulysses, KY, served in the Army during the Vietnam War.
Robinette explained that World War I does not have a flag, so the 48 star flag that is displayed, Korean War flag 'Freedom is not free'represents when the war started and ended. He also translated the inscription at the bottom of the Korean War flag which is written in Korean. "It says freedom is not free" he said.
The flags that are displayed in the hallway are the U.S. flag, WW II, Vietnam, Korea, the 48 star flag, as well as an MIA flag, and Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine. All are displayed in wooden shadow boxes.
The old Sheriff's Office is still being remodeled to include a reception Vietnam War flagarea, meeting room and kitchen. Robinette said the Veterans work on it when they can.
"A lot of our Veterans still work, so those of us that are retired try to as much as we can."
The Veterans Memorial Hallway is sponsored by the local Veterans, Lawrence Co. Tourism, and the Lawrence Co. Fiscal Court. Lawrence County Judge Executive, John Osborne said he thought the hallway was a good opportunity to honor our Veterans. As for the old Sheriff's Office, Osborne said "they have a 40 year lease on the building. They have a home here for as long as they want it."
The annual Veterans Memorial Service will be held Saturday, May 24, at 2:00 pm at Yatesville Memorial Marina, and is open to the public. Hotdogs and refreshments will be served.
