This page is dedicated to all veterans who were born, grew up or lived in Bethel, Delaware


When I was growing up in Bethel, there was a display case in front of the Bethel United Methodist Church. This display contained the names of veterans from Bethel through WWII. As a young boy this list of names didn't really mean much to me. After I returned to Bethel, after a hitch in the United States Navy, this list of names meant a great deal more to me; however, the display had been removed and no one seemed to know what had happened to it. I occassionally thought about this display over the years but it wasn't until a trip to New England in the summer of 1998 for a Navy reunion, that I stared thinking more about the list of names again. In many of the small towns in New England  there seemed to be a display of the veterans  in most town squares. I thought this web page would be a good place to once again show our appreciation to our Bethel veterans. I'm sure that in composing this list I have overlooked someone or have an error in the information. My apologies for that. If you know of someone who should be included in this list or a correction made, please let me know and I'll add the name or make the correction as soon as possible.
