The memorial is kept up to date by the city of Portsmouth. The memorial includes 84 men from the area who died in World War I and 208 who perished in World War II. There are 31 names representing local men who died in Korea. This area is home to annual celebrations and commemorations of local veterans and the memorial continues to expand as funding is available and as new names are added.
On the rear of the memorial is written In honor and memory of all veterans of Scioto County who served our country in times of peace and war. And to those who paid the supreme sacrifice so that we may enjoy freedom. Their spirit, devotion, a love of country will be forever remembered.
