Cresco's Five Admirals
Cresco Iowa is very proud of its veterans. It is a community which has provided more than its share of men and women who have served our country in the Armed Services.

On May 30, 1994, the 50th Anniverary of World War II, Cresco was designated a World War II Commemorative Community by the Department of Defense. A special ceremony was conducted by the VFW and the American Legion Club in recognition of this honor. During the ceremony the VFW received a Commemorative Community Certificate of Designation, the distinctive World War II Commemoration Flag, and the official United States of American 50th Anniversary of WW II Commemoration Lapel Pin.

Cresco is proud of the brave men and women who sacrificed so much for our country so that we might live in peace today. A monument to our veterans has been erected in Courthouse Square.
