Saturday morning local veterans and officials attended a ceremony to dedicate a new monument honoring not only those who served, but memorializing the eight Posey County souls who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the Korean War. The brief ceremony was held at the east end of Riverbend Park.
Marine Sgt. and Korean War veteran John E. Meador made the decision to honor his fallen comrades out of his love for his country and his fellow servicemen and women. He wanted a lasting tribute to them.
