GREENWOOD, Ind. (WISH) -- A new veterans memorial will be built in Greenwood.
Mayor Mark Myers joined others Monday to break ground on the project. It's located on the corner of Surina Way and Meridian Street.
The veterans memorial will be a centerpiece honoring all branches of service with memorial bricks in one area, plus memorial benches and other features.
The site will provide a place for the community to witness the scope and depth of Greenwood's continued gratitude to veterans, police, fire and emergency medical personnel of the area.
In the May 7 GOP primary election, Dale Marmaduke will face off against Myers, who is running for a third term.
