After 24 years in the Army, retiring as a Green Beret and traveling to many places around the world, veteran George Peters says that Detroit Lakes is at the top of his list.

Peters and other veterans hope those people will see what veterans -- and their proposed park -- mean to Detroit Lakes, and Becker County as a whole.
