Major Fischer, commandant, has graciously given leave lo the cadet to represent the contemporary military on a weekend when the military men of the past are remembered. Cadet Van Orsdale will participate in the service of the church Sunday at 10 a.m. and will march in the Prospect Memorial Day Parade, beginning at 1:30 p.m. Monday, and will offer prayer during the exercises thereafter. It is hoped lhat his presence will remind the people of Prospect of those currently serving in the military and will bring to the attention of its young people Ihe suitability of a military career. Local Historian Miss Nellie Cowtfell, has informed us that the fourth volume in the series Prospect Town History may be available by Memorial Day, a fitting dale since the booklet deals with a history of those who served our country as far back as the Revolutionary War. As you can well imagine, the research involved is quite a task but was fruitful in lhat several more names deserving of being placed on the Honor Roll have been found. The booklet will have a brief story of 48 to 50 men, many of whom rest in graves in other area stales. The research revealed that Levi Tyler who died in camp in 1777 and Aaron Russell who was killed in the attack on New Haven in 1779 were only 13 and 14 years old. Miss Cowdell noted that although Ihe graves of the two have not yet been found the monument on the Green should be considered as the symbol of the unknown graves from the first settler loset foot in Prospect viled lo view the capsule history o!
