Our new exhibit honors local WWII hero

Bombardier Lt. Ewart T. Sconiers

Lt. Sconiers made national news when after 65 years his remains were finally located. Plans have been made for their return to DeFuniak Springs.

The city will have a parade in his honor on January 26, 2018. For over 65 years, Ewart Sconiers’ name was on the Walls of the Missing at the Henri-Chapell American Cemetery in Belgium. On January 26, he is returning to Walton County for a reburial next to his Mother at the DeFuniak Springs cemetery.
