My brothers and I made a Memorial web site to all the men who did not come home. The men lived in Clermont County, State of Ohio. The Memorial is Dedicated to 1LT Andrew M. Haglage, Panel 33w-Row056.

We made the web page hoping that anyone who served with a county boy will know that we will never forget who they were and what they gave up for our FREEDOM.
