Veterans Memorial Dedication

These are a few of the photos taken of the Veterans Memorial dedication held on the new downtown riverfront.

They tried to hold the services the day before Memorial Day, but it was cancelled due to rain.

So they scheduled it for the next weekend.

The Unveiling

The mayor of Shelton, Mark Lauretti, did the unveiling of four large pieces, each etched with the different wars on the front,

World War I

World War II

the Korean War and Vietnam War

MIA - POW The mayor arrives

On the back of the memorials are engraved the names of the men and women of Shelton who lost their lives during these wars.

It's very beautifully done. There is also a Veterans Memorial at Riverview Park.
