Fallen soldiers of Elkhart County: Honoring our heroes

From World War I to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, our Wall of Honor asks for your help remembering Elkhart County’s fallen heroes.

To remember and honor the fallen men and women in the armed forces, The Elkhart Truth has created the Wall of Honor.

The Wall of Honor covers Elkhart County’s fallen soldiers from World War I through the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. We couldn't find photos or, in some cases, anything beyond names for many of these military men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice. While we have been able to capture the memories of some, others have stories yet to be told.

For that, we need your help.

If you have any information about anyone included on this list or someone who should be included, email Sarah Welliver at swelliver@elkharttruth.com.

Watch a video of a sibling’s memories of Lewis Shaum, who is one of the heroes on the Wall of Honor.
