Veterans in one Minnesota community will soon have
a place honoring the sacrifices they've made.
The Spring Grove Area Veterans Memorial Group broke
ground today on a new memorial to honor those from
the community who served the country.
It will include the names of 9-hundred-67 people from
Spring Grove carved in granite who enlisted in the
armed forces dating back to the Civil War .
A special Gold Star stone will contain the names of
60 people who made the ultimate sacrifice .
and lost their lives in battle.
We hope that the community will learn of the sacrifices
of our citizen soldiers, those who served in all lines
of work in the armed forces, also the coast guard
and merchant marine.
We want kids to be curious about what Grandpa did
and perhaps do the research.
The Memorial is scheduled to be finished and formally
dedicated next June.
