Doddridge County West Virginia

'Located in the County Seat of Doddridge County, the Town of West Union, is the Wall of Honor, dedicated to all of those who have served in the US Armed Forces.  This was a massive undertaking for the County - and it is ongoing for the upkeep of this wonderful memorial. Many of our Doddridge men signed up for the service - or for re-enlistment - while in other counties. These names were then not listed on the Doddridge records or available to those who worked on the original compilation'.
