The Elkhart Truth
All Theresa Lewis wants is a small spot on the sprawling World War II memorial that covers part of a hallway wall in Elkhart City Hall.
An inch or so by 6 inches would suffice.
There, the Elkhart woman wants to place a small wooden nameplate reading “Leon Ellis Anglemyer.” That’s her father, a prisoner of war from World War II who grew up in Elkhart County and died here in 1964 when he was just 40 years old. The memorial at city hall honors those from the community who served in the war, and she noticed five or so years back that her dad’s name was absent among the many inscribed nameplates up there.
