The Shiloh Veterans Memorial now includes a black granite stone. Members of Shiloh American Legion Post 503, and the community, gathered Sunday at the Richland County Sheriff's outpost for an unveiling and dedication ceremony. $7000 was raised to purchase the stone. And it was well-received by those getting their first look at it. The memorial stone was the brainchild of American Legion auxiliary member Rita Keesey, who got the idea by visiting the Vietnam veterans memorial in Washington D-C in 2002.
