memorialPioneer Memorial contracted with Don Brewer with Brewer Lettering in Pickton to add a special area for Prisoners of War and Missing in Action soldiers on a stone at the Hopkins County Veterans Memorial Thursday.  The new area is just to the left of the art work on the waterfall wall.  It features names of POW’s from World War I and World War II as well as MIA’s from World War II and the Korean conflict.  It also includes a POW/MIA insignia.  Memorial Committee Member Tommy Allison researched information for the new area, came up with the names and raised money for the project.  Committee Member Pam Elliott said a Killed in Action, or KIA area, is under consideration.
