Review of Pershing Square

Pershing Square
Reviewed 2 July 2017

The important thing to remember about Pershing Square is you don’t have to be a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, Silver Star , Purple Heart (PH) , Bronze Star Medal (BSM), French Legion of Honor recipient, a survivor of the Bataan death march in WW II or to have served overseas or be from Ocean Springs although all of these Honored Veterans are represented in PERSHING SQUARE . Scores of the bricks honor Ocean Springs residents and family members who served including the fifteen original charter members of World War I Emile Ladnier American Legion Post 42 dated December 19, 1919 to include : H. Powell, Joseph C. Chaillot, R. Englaith, Oscar T. Davis, William L, Chaillot, Deo F. Bertuccini, Thomas Murphy , Van Cleave Reid, S. Chester Davis, Floyd Howell , James T. Ryan , Louis S. Tardy, L. Westbrook, Narcisse Dick and W.M. Abraham . Among the last bricks to be placed in Pershing Square were in memory of USMC MSGT John E. Hayes killed in action 8 July 2009 and GYSGT Jon W. Gifford killed in action 29 July 2012 both in Afghanistan .
