The Eldora Veterans Memorial was unveiled last weekend — just in time to commemorate Veterans Day and the service of the men and women who have ties to our county seat.

The work to convert the Eldora monument from a plan on paper to a series of granite stones, flags and a bench, has been a labor of love for those involved. The beginnings of the project go back five years. In addition to raising $140,000, the committee behind the memorial tracked down the names of nearly 1,500 men and women who are honored on the stone slabs.
