A new York County Veterans Memorial monument was installed this week in the city of York. It will officially be opened to the public Saturday, after York’s annual Veterans Day parade.
The new monument is next to the York County Library branch at East Liberty and Garner streets in downtown York. The new monument has 34 new names found by researchers who determined these men had died “in theater during war” and were deserving of being on the monument, which honors those killed in action during wartime according to published reports.
The monument culminates years of planning by the York County Veterans Advisory Council.
