Planted to commemorate
the services of our nurses
Fond du Lac County,
in the World War
by
E. A. Brown Relief Corps.
1920

The memorial is located on southbound South Main Street, just south of its intersection with 3rd Street, on the grounds of Veterans Park, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin 54935.

To my memory (having visited more than 400 to date), this is the first veterans memorial I've seen commemorating military nurses.

The National Woman's Relief Corps

These memorials are also at this location:

The tree is to the right of the marker. Nearly 100 years later, it's now huge!



The Fond du Lac County Civil War memorial is also at this location. The memorial tree is behind the statue, to the left.
