Military Service

The men and women of Cuyahoga Heights answered the call to arms.  During World War I, many of the men volunteered and responded to the draft to serve.  Many who were immigrants were given citizenship upon entering the service.  In 1947, the first veterans organization, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 6566 was organized and given quarters at the village-owned facility at 4646 E. 71st St., which was the old Willow House, which is now gone and but a memory.
 
The marble memorial at the Village Hall was dedicated in 1948 in tribute to all village men and women who served in the military.  It is the scene of the annual Memorial Day services.
