The commander of a local VFW post says the wall is a touching tribute. “It’s a chance to teach others of the times that we served, the branches of the military that we served in, the times, the camaraderie. That’s what it’s all about,” said Robert Deurloo.
The city is planning on having walls of honor at its other senior centers and residents can contact their local senior center to participate.
