This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the Allied victory over Germany and Japan, bringing World War Two to an end. Over 600 young men and women from Johnson County, Wyoming enlisted or were drafted into the war effort. These are their stories of the sacrifices, destruction and devastation of war. The costs and lingering horrors of war commit us to be a greater force for peace and reconciliation in our community, nation and world. We remember those 405,399 Americans who gave their lives and those whose lives were forever changed.
