The Veterans Freedom Flag Monument is dedicated to all veterans who made the sacrifice for freedom around the world, but on Saturday (11/11/2017) they had a special honor for one veteran who helped get the monument built.

As part of their veterans day ceremony, the UAW Local 2075 Veterans Committee placed two wreaths on the monument, one for all of our service men and women and the other for Korean War Veteran Ronald Dennis, who passed away earlier this week. Dennis's funeral was Saturday (11/11/2017) and the Marine's last request was that his funeral procession stopped in front of the monument that he helped to build.  It took six years to construct the memorial and it represents a community effort that Dennis and others had to honor those who were members of the U.S. Military.

Jason Early, Chairperson UAW Local 2075 Veterans Committee says, "It shows a sense of pride in the community from us here and those that come and visit can take a since of pride about what people have done and what our solders have done for us for our freedoms that we have today." 

If you would like to check out the Veterans Freedom Flag Monument, it’s located at 1161 Buckeye Road.
