9-1 WWIISoldier1.jpg

The grave of Madison County soldier Sgt. Allen Perry Moberly is pictured at the Normandy American Cemetery in France. As is tradition, high school student Brad Shoopman rubbed sand into the etched letters of the stone to make the words appear and then read a eulogy he prepared to memorialize Moberly. The sand was taken from Omaha beach, where Moberly was fatally wounded during the WWII D-Day landings.
