Thank You American Legion for Medal of Honor Flags

The Friends of Silverbrook would like to thank the LaRue Messenger American Legion Post 26 for their donation of two Medal of Honor flags, which will fly over Silverbrook's Medal of Honor winner, Corporal Joseph Nolan, who earned the high honor serving in the Philippines.  

Corporal Nolan's grave can be seen from the corner of South Eleventh Street and Cherry Street.  

The Friends purchased the flag pole, and appreciate the Legion's help in supplying the light blue flags which signify a Medal of Honor winner.

There is a photo of Corporal Nolan's Veteran marker on our website, however, no obituary was found in the Niles or South Bend papers at the time of his death.
