21-gun salute at Memorial Park Cemetery in Lawrence

It is with sincere admiration and appreciation that LJWorld.com and INTRUST Bank recognizes these men and women of Douglas County who made the ultimate sacrifice in serving our country. It is a privilege to honor their memories.

Thank you.

Neither we nor future generations will forget the sacrifices that you made.

The list was compiled in the book by “Rise up in Honor” by the Douglas County Memorial of Honor. Regrettably we were only able to obtain a list of names through the Vietnam War. Additionally, we recognize that this list may not identify all Douglas County citizens who lost their lives in defense of our freedom. Please email us any name that should be included in the list (name, branch of service, conflict) and feel free to use the comment form below to leave your own thanks, or other memories.
