I’m a walker, and when I visit my hometown my walking route often takes me downtown and past the Veterans Memorial. Not infrequently, I stop to read the bricks on the memorial wall, inscribed with the names and dates of service of Frankenmuth veterans. Crosses on the bricks denote those who died in the service of our country. The local American Legion Post 150 constructed the memorial in 1995.
A marker explains the symbolism used in the monument.
In remembrance this Memorial Day. Thank you, veterans.
