Maine man compiling names of World War II vets for monument

The Associated Press

LIVERMORE FALLS, Maine — A Maine man’s quest to compile the names of all residents from Livermore and Livermore Falls who served in World War II so they can be placed on a monument is making progress.

Don Simoneau said he expects to collect 700-800 names to they can be engraved on brass plates and attached to a granite monument in Geneva Hodgkins Memorial Park. He has been putting the list together for about 20 years.

The Sun Journal reported that Simoneau explained the project to selectmen this week.

The names were all on a wooden monument in the park that was taken down in the 1960s and replaced with the current granite monument. But the current monument did not include the names.
