HARTFORD AREA VETERANS MEMORIAL
This Memorial is dedicated to all the Hartford area men and women who served our country in all wars. A granite monument sits in the center with etchings of an American scene and military branch seals. Five grey pedestals stand along the backside with names of those who served in the Civil War, Spanish American War, WWI, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War and Grenada War.
Hartford native Jordan Daniel Lueth is a Staff Sergeant in the South Dakota Air National Guard. Lueth enlisted in 2015 and was deployed to Afghanistan in 2018 for three months. He now works as traditional National Guardsman in Sioux Falls as a Crew Chief on F-16 jets.
“I joined the military to be a part of something that is bigger than myself. From when I was a very young age, I always knew I had a passion for listening to stories about military Veterans and operations that have taken place over my lifetime. I knew I wanted to be a part of the military to help serve our country. The Air Guard was something I could do to help contribute, while also completing my civilian goals of completing a bachelor’s degree at SDSU,” said Lueth.
