Literally millions have served, and although U.S. casualty of war figures vary from source to source, the bottom line is, more than one and a half million Americans have fallen in wars, including both sides from the Civil War, since the Revolution, with nearly half of them in World War II alone. Hundreds of thousands more were wounded, with tens of thousands suffering permanent disabilities.  That's just military personnel.   Though not all perished in battle, the sacrifice was made by each and every one of them.  And though, with the exception of the Civil War and the casualties of 9-11, no war was ever fought on U.S. soil, thousands of U.S. civilians also fell during wartimes.

Lebanon County, Pennsylvania is proud to honor and remember her military veterans and fallen heroes.  Statues, monuments, memorials and markers can be found throughout the county.  And, as in any city or town across America, patriotism can be seen anywhere you look.  To date, more than ten thousand veterans are interred in Lebanon County cemeteries, hundreds having made the ultimate sacrifice in war.

Men and women from Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, inclusively the area that would become Lebanon County in 1813, have been serving in our country's military forces since the Revolutionary War.  There are many monuments, memorials and other markers throughout the county which stand to honor, commemorate and remember them, but not all of them.

Monument Park in the city of Lebanon at 8th and Lehman Streets, a remnant portion of Camp Coleman, and the Civil War Memorial at Mt. Lebanon Cemetery on Maple Street preserve the heritage of our Civil War veterans.  Fisher Veterans Park in the city of Lebanon honors our veterans and fallen heroes with memorials from the Spanish-American War up to the current conflicts in Southwest Asia.  All, except the latter, contain Honor Rolls of the fallen.

It is hoped that in time a Lebanon County, Pennsylvania Civil War Honor Roll can be compiled, as well as for any that may exist prior to the Civil War.  Though a physical Honor Roll Memorial may never be erected to honor these men, their names and heritage would be preserved within these pages.

As of January, 2005 more than 10,000 military veterans, ranging from the American Revolution up to the current conflicts in Southwest Asia, are interred in Lebanon County cemeteries.  Unknown others may be interred on private or family plots.
