Remembering the Rain Day Boys

Every year during the Rain Day celebration, the Waynesburg community takes a moment to remember and honor the brave men of Company K, 110th Infantry, 28th Division who gave the ultimate sacrifice during World War I between July 28 and 29, 1918. The 18 young men are known as our “Rain Day Boys.”
