Vietnam War Memorial in Brighton

Vietnam War Memorial

Exciting news and update on the progress of the “Vietnam War Memorial in Brighton” project.

On Tuesday January 24th at City Council study session, the project was presented and entailed a slide presentation that illustrated location(corner of South 4th & Jessup), design and budget. Information was given to the Council regarding the number of names gathered to date(192 returned veterans, 22 killed in action).

The room was filled to capacity with veterans in attendance to show their support. The Council voiced their support to fund the project. Their comments were heartfelt and very positive. All would like to see this project completed by late spring or early summer 2017.

In closing, we would like to thank the committee, the City Council and all those involved to this point, but most all thank you for your service.
