MONROE - The Green County Veterans Memorial Park Committee has been able to acquire a helicopter for the tribute park after searching for more than a decade. GCVMP board vice president Bill Hustad was glad to accept delivery of the Huey UH-1 from a private seller in Connecticut. It will be stored locally until all funds are raised to fully pay for the new addition to the park located at the intersection of County N and Wisconsin 81 in Monroe.
