Area landmarks serve as memorials to veterans

Email News Alerts

As Memorial Day nears, the public’s conscience turns toward honoring the men and women who are serving, or have served, in our nation’s Armed Forces.

The Becker County Veteran’s Memorial Highway is perhaps the largest of those landmarks.
