To complete many of the Wyoming Cemetery Restorations, we are using American Republic Construction, a disabled veteran owned and operated business.
We completed the restoration of several city Civil War monuments for Memorial Day 2014 as part of Operation Gettysburg and our city's commitment to honoring all eras of veteran history.
The Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School Operation Gettysburg Club raised money to send Melrose veterans to the Gettysburg Battlefield this May. An important part of the project was restoring Civil War monuments throughout the city to bring awareness and to honor our Civil War veterans. Due to additional monies granted by the state, we plan to continue this restoration by continuing the GAR monument upgrade.
