When the World War II Memorial is dedicated on the Capitol Mall in St. Paul this Saturday, Detroit Lakes resident Truman Hermanson will be among those WWII veterans on hand to witness the event first-hand.


"They've never really done anything for us World War II guys, and now, all of a sudden... they're going to do a bang-up job," he says. "I'm really looking forward to seeing it."
