The American Legion unveiled their monument at the Iowa Veterans Cemetery Saturday afternoon.

The monument was designed to incorporate every branch of the military and honor our fallen heroes.

The design was created by a West Union high school student.

American Legion members hope by adding this monument at the cemetery, it helps honor those who have served our country.

“We just felt it would be right for us to have it here we need to honor our deceased veterans and all the troubles they have gone through and all those who are out there still having problems,” says  Dennis Soppe from The Iowa American Legion.

The project cost $12,000 was two years in the making and was made possible all by donations.
