German Italian Memorial Cemetery
Fort McClellan, Anniston, Calhoun County, Alabama
This listing was contributed by Aaron and Johanna Bock [Abock74@aol.com]. Total records = 29.
The information from the stones was written down in August 1998. This cemetery has been unused since the end of World War II. The cemetery is in good condition since it is on what is currently Fort McClellan, but since the fort is closing and the land is being returned to the city of Anniston, we cannot predict what will happen at the completion of the base closure. All the stones in the cemetery are typical military stones (white and in straight lines). It is a pretty but small cemetery. At the entrance to the cemetery, there is a stone marker that has a symbol of an eagle with something in it's talons. The symbol was not familiar to either of us. We have a dark picture of the symbol if anyone wants/needs to see it.
