Raising the flags on Veterans Day

Woodbury remembered veterans Tuesday at the unveiling of the community's first official Veterans Memorial.

Despite freezing precipitation and near freezing temps, more than 200 people attended the afternoon event at the memorial site on Woodbury City Hall property.

The city of Woodbury, local veterans organizations and the Woodbury Lions Club partnered for the project to erect the memorial, which honors all branches of the military.

Several families that purchased memorial pavers that have been installed at the site participated in the ceremony. The memorial pavers are engraved with names of veterans and their branch of service. Purchase of the pavers go toward paying for the costs and upkeep of the memorial site.
