Memorial

A small stone honoring World War II veterans on 9th Street Northeast in East Wenatchee.

EAST WENATCHEE — “Forgotten Memorial?” Lynda Schlosser wrote in her note this week to The Wenatchee World.

She attached a photo that she took through a chain-link fence. The words on the stone, framed by an American flag, read:

“THIS SPRUCE TREE

OUR LIVING MEMORIAL

HONORING

THOSE WHO SERVED IN WORLD WAR II.”

“The picture I am attaching I took as I was leaving Worx Gym in East Wenatchee,” Schlossler wrote. The stone is in a vacant lot surrounded by a temporary fence.

“It has been cleared and it is nothing but weeds with the exception of this memorial. It looks like it has been long forgotten and there is no tree standing there.”

A check of The Wenatchee World’s digital archives, which go back to the mid-1990s, didn’t turn up a report about the stone honoring veterans in the war, which ended in 1945, she wrote.
