Honor Roll: Lenoir County, North Carolina, World Wars Memorial

The Lenoir County World War I and World War II Monument stands on the left front lawn of the Lenoir County Courthouse in Kinston.

Lenoir County World War I and World War II monument; personal collection

The monument is a marble structure that is placed on a raised pediment base. The center is a vertical rectangle with an eagle etched in the top with outstretched wings. Below the eagle is an inscription.

1917-19                                                                                                           1941-1945
In grateful tribute toward the living and the dead who through their valiant efforts and bitter sacrifice have made America great is this shrine so nobly dedicated.
May God grant that the liberty of mankind which only brave souls win and only vigilance can guard shall live on with greater virility to perpetuate itself for all ages to come.
The sides of the monument are plain marble panels, which are 2-1/2 feet shorter than the center panel. On the left panel are inscribed the names of the Lenoir County citizens who fought in World War I and beginning on the bottom left of the left side panel and the entire right side panel are the names of Lenoir County citizens who fought in World War II.
