WWII Memorial Dedication – to the three American GI’s from the B Company,
11th Tank Battalion, 10th Armored Division.
On December 26, 1944 their Sherman tank attempted to cross the ‘Hesper’ bridge
when suddenly it skidded into the river, killing three of the five soldiers inside.
William Keeler and Oscar L. Davis survived unlike Lewis W. Meade,
Isidore M. Vasko and James G. Russ.
