BELDING —The Veterans Freedom Wall, which once stood at the corner of Main and Congress streets until it was decommissioned in 1948, will officially live on in the newly constructed wall located on Depot Street just west of the Pere Marquette Depot in Belding.

At 11 a.m. Sunday, Veterans Day, a ceremony dedicating the new wall will take place, unveiling the wall 64 years to the day that the original wall was destroyed.

Visitors who attend the dedication are encouraged to purchase bricks which will eventually create the foundation of Belding Veterans Park. For $50, any veteran who has served or is currently serving in the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines or Coast Guard during wartime or peacetime can have their name inscribed on the brick.

Call Denny Craycraft at (616) 550-6990 for more information or to donate.
