DEARBORN – Three hundred and forty seven men and women soldiers from Dearborn have given their lives in service to the United States since World War I and their names are inscribed on Dearborn’s War Memorial.
As a remembrance of their sacrifice, author Lisa Lark has put together the stories of each of the fallen soldiers in a book titled “Gone Too Soon: Dearborn Remembers Its Fallen Heroes.”
Henry Ford Centennial Library will host Lark for a virtual Zoom discussion at 7 p.m. Dec. 8 to discuss how her book came about and the stories that it contains. To register for this program, go to the Library website (www.dearbornlibrary.org) and click on the Events Calendar and Registration Link.
Born and raised in Dearborn, Lark is a researcher and writer focusing on telling the stories of the men and women who have given their lives in military service. This coffee-table style book includes a brief biography for each Dearborn service member, as well as remembrances and artwork created by family, friends, and community members.
The book is on sale at the MT Publishing website (www.mtpublishing.com). All of the proceeds from the sales of the book will go toward the purchase of a Names Memorial for Dearborn High. Fordson and Edsel Ford high schools in Dearborn already have a memorial for former students who perished in military service.
