From Local Sources
FERDINAND — A dedication ceremony for the Ferdinand Veterans Memorial, constructed on the north side of town to honor the service of all United States veterans, is set for 2 p.m. on Monday, May 27, which is Memorial Day.
The public is invited to attend.
The memorial features a large, granite monument thanking all U.S. veterans, five smaller monuments representing each branch of the military and three flags — the U.S. flag, Indiana flag and the black POW/MIA flag. A granite stone engraved with the saying, “All gave some, some gave all,” will be placed at the foot of the large monument.
U.S. Sen. Mike Braun will speak at the dedication, as well as Indiana Sen. Mark Messmer and Ferdinand Town Council President Ken Sicard. The Forest Park High School band will play patriotic music.
Public parking will be at the Ferdinand Community Center, with a free shuttle transporting guests to the memorial site. The Pine Drive and Rose Heights neighborhood will be closed to traffic, with the exception of VIP and handicap parking.
