Igo Calif.—Memorials and monuments are a way we can honor our nations veterans.
A new design concept will be presented to the Northern California Veterans Cemetery for a new monument.
The cemetery in Igo is the resting place for many military members from all branches of the military in the north state.
There are monuments dedicated to the United States Air Force veterans, and to those who have served in the Korean War.
Wednesday afternoon the Monuments and Memorials Committee of the Cemetery will consider a new design by the United States Marines.
This monument will would be a part of a larger Branch Memorial that is planned for the cemetery.
Each branch of the military will be represented with monuments positioned in pentagon shape and encasing protecting the American flag that will be placed in the center.
A military veteran himself, Mark George who oversees the veteran’s cemetery says the monuments play an important role in recognizing the sacrifices of military men and woman.
He says that the monuments represent their hard work, and the time they gave to their country.
The Monuments and Memorial Committee meeting takes place at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Northern California Veterans Cemetery, located on Gas Point Road in Igo.
The meeting is open to the public.
If the Committee likes the concept, a formal request will be made to the California Department of Veterans Affairs, Cal Vet seeking final approval.
