August 04, 2004|by BRIAN SHAPPELL

SMITHSBURG - A monument commemorating World War II soldiers from the Smithsburg area will be recast within weeks and will include the name of a veteran whose name was left off decades ago.

Town Historian Charlie Slick said a new name plate on the monument will include Harry Brown's name. He said it will be ready in two to four weeks.

Mayor Mildred "Mickey" Myers said Brown's family members brought the omission to the attention of officials when they attended a remembrance ceremony on Memorial Day.

Myers said she was proud the town quickly rectified the accidental omission.
