MONROE - Members of the Green County Veterans Memorial Park Committee plan to construct a gazebo this year bearing the names of every veteran from the area as a token of gratitude and remembrance. The committee has already placed a tank, brick pavers with supporters' names and a Huey helicopter at the park located on the corner of Wisconsin 81 and County N. The helicopter was dedicated in November after years of searching; the gazebo will be the next phase for the memorial park. Board member Donna Douglas noted the importance of the Hall of Honor and the wall of honor bearing veterans' names from the American Revolution to present day.
