Milford woman launches effort to honor memorial's 13 from World War II
At the World War II memorial at the corner of Elm and Union streets, 13 arbor vitae trees were planted in the late 1940s to commemorate the men who never made it home from Europe and the Pacific.
"To most people, they're just trees," she said. "But they're so much more than that. I want to replace those trees so they bring out the story of those 13 men again."
With the help of Town Administrator Guy Scaife, a committee has been formed to study the issue of how to best honor the citizens who fought in World War II, said Lambalot.
"This is not going to happen in just a few days," she said, "but it is going to happen."
