2021 So Far
101 Wreaths Sponsored

William Howard “Bill” Monk, Jr., age 75, of Kenna WV passed away January 19th, 2021 after an extended illness. His father was a WWII veteran, sparking an interest in all-things military from an early age. This interest led him to serve his country as well as to become a lifelong collector of military patches and memorabilia. He served his country with the US Army during the Vietnam War as a combat engineer with the 82nd Airborne Division from 1965 to 1968. He was a founding member of the WV chapter of the 82nd Airborne Division Association, and a lifetime member of the VFW post 5501. He will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.
