Warriors of Woodland Park

Warriors of Woodland Park pays tribute to all veterans buried in the Woodland Park Cemetery. Every vet is featured by name and branch of service, along with personal data if known.

Moses Baldwin was the Father of Woodland Park… and a corporal in the Union Army.

Orville Anderson was a Marine orderly for General MacArthur.

Elsa Hayward was one of the first women to serve as a Navy WAVE (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service) during World War II.

Other brave men and women served as pilots, radio operators, tank mechanics, and other jobs.

You are invited to learn about those involved in controversy, men held as prisoners of war, and one young Marine, Eric Dickson, who was Woodland Park’s only Vietnam casualty.

Warriors of Woodland Park – Military Veterans of the Woodland Park Cemetery is on display in the Woodland Park Library during regular working hours through the month of November.
