St. Marys veterans' monuments dedicated

After more than a year of fundraising, planning and work, members of the St. Marys Servicemen's Burial Detail saw their vision realized during the dedication of veterans' monuments at the St. Mary's Catholic and Protestant cemeteries Saturday afternoon. The idea for the monuments honoring the veterans laid to rest in the community's cemeteries was first discussed by detail members in March 2011, and they promptly got the ball rolling with outreach and fundraising efforts.
