Pleasant and only three of them died in service.  In June 1918, there was a deposit of $7,500 in the Mt. Pleasant Com¬mercial and Savings Bank by the treasurer of the National American Red Cross, N.S. Nielsen. Local committees were organized within the local Red Cross. With much collaboration with the community, the Doughboy statute was erected to honor the soldiers that fought and died in World War II.
