Group wants monument to list, honour local fallen soldiers

By Jamie Smith, tbnewswatch.com

A group is looking to honour all of the city's fallen soldiers.

The military Tribute Committee says while the city does have several war memorials, it doesn't have one that lists all the names of those who have died in battle.

"We owe a debt that can never be repaid to those who gave up their lives," Spokesman Jim Mauro told city council Monday night.

The project will likely take years to get off the ground Mauro said, but they want the city to propose a location for it should enough funds be raised to build it.

"This will not be an easy undertaking," he said.

While the group does have several ideas for locations, from Marina Park to the Kam River Park, it's looking for administration to make the recommendation.

Members of city council supported the idea but suggested the group get in touch with the Legion and other community organizations to keep it going forward.
