The Gold Book This book, (sponsored by the American Legion Auxillary
of Post 70 and assisted by the Oberlin, Decatur County Kansas
Businessmen), is the natural follow up to a sign which was erected
on the grounds of the Courthouse here in Oberlin, during and after W.W.II.
The Gold Star, ""
was to signify killed or missing in action. The sign is lost, a victim of the ravages of time
and the Gold book has never been up-dated to include the wars or conflicts
in which the Nation has been involved since. It is the intention
of the Men and women of Post 70, ( with the help of contributors
and donations to our Memorial Fund), to rectify this and to re-instill
a sense of patriotic pride in those families whose fathers,
mothers, sons and daughters have sacrificed so much for the rest
of the nations' security and preservation.
