Veterans Memorial dedicated in Chanute


Some southeastern Kansas American Legion members raise more than $250,000 for a veterans memorial.

A formal dedication ceremony for the Chanute Area Veterans Memorial took place Monday afternoon at the Santa Fe Park.

The Chanute American Legion Riders Chapter 170 spent two years raising the funds to make it happen.

Each branch of the military is depicted with a bronze plaque and images of U.S. conflicts are etched into the wall.
