You will want to see the new Veteran's Memorial Park in Detroit Lakes. It is part of a new city park that went in along Highway 10 downtown.
Special monuments, flags and lights are all part of the new memorial. More than 500 pavers have also been purchased by families who are honoring loved ones who served our country, including one paver that featured a POW from the Korean War. His family wrote, "We are still waiting."
The memorial also has a special stone that honors the three members of the Red Bulls, who died in Iraq during the Minnesota Guard deployment.
Larry Hynding – Veterans Memorial Park Committee: “W think this is hallowed ground and theses veterans are brothers and sisters and they all have a story we encourage people to buy that brother or father or sister anybody that had is welcome to have a presence in this park and obtain a paver.”
