Birth: 1918
Ayer
Middlesex County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: unknown

The Sweet Heart Memorial was dedicated in 1918 "To those citizens of the United States who at the call of humanity laid aside their vocations to become soldiers in the Grand Army of Liberty."

The Sweetheart Memorial, built when Fort Devens was Camp Devens, symbolizes the importance attached to romance, love and marriage, especially when the people involved are about to face the dangers and horrors of war.

It is the oldest monument on the post, it was constructed of stones brought from all over the country by the Army's loved ones ...sisters, wives, girlfriends, mothers... and it remains one of the last physical remnants of World War I at Devens.

Many servicemen and women celebrated their weddings by being photographed in front of this memorial.
