Veterans’ Day, Nov. 11, 2010, the monument was dedicated. The Ceremony was amazing! It was truly humbling to be a part of such a great event and to have an opportunity to show appreciation to all of the Veterans.

Many people came to the ceremony; both military and civilian.
Each branch of the United States armed service was individually honored. Then the flag was raised.
Major General Cornell A. Wilson, Jr. USMC (Ret.) and many other Veterans were photographed in front of the monument.
