American Legion Post 42 has been very busy this past year with a very aggressive fund raiser and construction of a "new" Veterans Memorial. This new memorial consists of eight life size statues, twelve granite benches, nine flagpoles, and most importantly, four black granite tablets listing over one thousand names of veterans either from Arlington or having ties to the our community. This has been a very rewarding project for not only the American Legion but all the support we have received from a community with a population of less than 1000 people as well. Our formal dedication will be held on May 27th of 2013 when the final landscaping will be done.
If you're ever in the eastern South Dakota area, please stop by and see our pride and joy.
