The Park Valley History Committee came together to write the book Wilderness to Neighbourhoods, Lake Four, Park Valley, Rabbit Bluff, Stump Lake, and Millard Hill published in 1992. Within the book they pay tribute to those who paid the supreme sacrifice in the two great wars, the Korean War and the Boer War from the area of Saskatchewan.

Park Valley is 22.5 kilometers (fourteen miles) northeast of Debden. Traveling along provincial highway the village of Debden is located 94.18 kilometres (55 58.52 miles) from Prince Albert approximately an hour away and traveling along Saskatchewan provincial highway 12 Debden is 193.06 kilometres (119.96 miles) from Saskatoon about a two and a half hour drive. Debden is northwest of Prince Albert and north of Saskatoon.

Within the Wilderness to Neighbourhoods local history book are photos of those recorded in the roll of honour, as well as a newspaper article of those who returned home aboard the Queen Elizabeth troopship in November of 1945.
