Restoration plans are being made to breathe new life into Detroit’s 75-year-old Michigan War Veterans Memorial, according to the Associated Press — a collaborative effort between Veterans groups and community organizations.

Last Friday, officials from involved participants gathered across from the Michigan Fairgrounds to announce a $100,000 preservation project of the 35-foot-tall monument commemorating veterans from every war, which will be funded by the state. The monument was originally dedicated just over a week after the Germans’ invaded Poland in 1939 – starting World War II.

Several Michigan leaders attended the announcement, including Democratic Senator Virgil Smith and former commander of the Michigan American Legion, Dick Chapman.

Have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day!
