Also located within Oak Ridge Cemetery are the War Memorials. These memorials honor Illinoisians who served their country's call to service in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. They were built to perpetuate the memory of the many soldiers who sacrificed their lives to keep the United States "the land of the free and the home of the brave" by their honored and meritorious service. The union preserved by Lincoln was defended and protected by these courageous men and women in the global conflicts of the mid-20th Century.
