A Tribute to Those Who Served

In Open Season, You Mist It the First Time on May 29, 2011 at 7:10 pm

For Memorial Day, the Alert reflects on the sacrifice of Elbertians living and dead who have dedicated themselves to our national security and fought to uphold our freedoms. Below is the only known image of the monument that once stood in Veterans’ Park. Parks and Rec is currently at work on a plan to create a new memorial. If you would like to add a name, donate funds, or help out in any way, please contact Arthur Melendez at 616-446-5340. Art is the author of a beautiful piece on our living vets for the May issue, which will be distributed on Tuesday.
