War Vets Recreation Inc. recently made a contribution to the Veterans Memorial Commission Relocation Fund.
Barclay Wellman, a retired U.S. Army major general, serves on the board at War Vets Recreation, Inc. as well as the Veterans Memorial Commission.
"Moving the memorial from the high school to the new location (near Logan and Harding Avenues) has lots of costs involved," Wellman said. "There need to be walkways, monuments and areas for people to come together and hold special ceremonies and remember why we are here."
Barclay Wellman, War Vets Recreation, Inc. board member, presents a check to Ron Cotten, Veterans Relocation Commission chairman, for the ongoing Veterans Memorial Relocation Project.
