The Alden Advertiser is attempting to locate any resident from Alden who volunteered in the WWII Aircraft Observation Post/Tower that was located in the Village.

Volunteers received training books and patches and were expected to watch and identify any plane that went over Alden. If a threat was observed it was reported through a “chain of command”.

If you were a volunteer and are interested in sharing your story with us, call our offices at 937-9226 or email us at
