Hometown Hero's dedication remembered in Our Town

GIFFORD -- An area veteran made it his mission to honor those from Our Town who have served.
GIFFORD -- An area veteran made it his mission to honor those from Our Town who have served. Even after his death earlier this year, his legacy continues.

Jerry King saw there wasn't a memorial in town. He collected names of veterans from every single war who was from town. He had a memorial, constructed, installed and engraved with each name.

King died earlier this year, but his wife, Martha, decided to take over and keep his work on the memorial going. It's kept up by the Gifford Lions Club. Local businesses volunteered to build it.
