In 2014 American Legion Post 903 started raising money to Rebuild the Tannersville War Memorial located on RT. 611 & 715. In 2015 with the help of Boy Scout Troop 85 & an Eagle Scout Project we put in 6 new Flag Poles. In 2016 we put in 6 Park Benches. One for each Branch of Service & one for our POW’S & MIA’S. In 2016 we also installed a Plaque to Honor ALL those from Monroe County that never Returned from Vietnam. This year we are trying to raise enough money to wash & repair ALL the cracks & loose joints in the Memorial. We also want to put up a Plaque to Honor all the WWI Veterans from Monroe County that died during WWI. We also want to put a walkway around the front of the Memorial & the Vietnam Plaque & install a Park Bench by the WWI Plaque & Vietnam Plaque. This project will be ongoing as we also want to build a Plaque for our WWII Veterans & then our Korean Veterans. Hopefully we will still be around to finish off with a Plaque for the War on Terror that started with the attack on 9/11. We need your help & Support to do this. As we do not have a Post Home everything that needs to be done from Donations from you & the Community. Come out & support us at ALL our Ceremonies. To donate please send a check to American Legion Post 903 & mail it to PO Box 580 MT. Pocono PA 18344. Please pass this on to your friends.

The enclosed attachment are new pictures of the Memorial.
