VFW Dedicates Veteran Memorial
CALIFORNIA - Veterans of Foreign War held a ceremony to dedicate a memorial to American war veterans. Eye doctor Don Vanderfiltz sponsored the dedication of the War Memorial Mural, which was painted by a local artist Dennis Holliday.
Vanderfiltz bought the building five years ago and agreed to share the location with VFW for their meeting. He repaired the blank wall of the building this spring and decided to use it for a painting to dedicate the veterans.
Vanderfiltz said the mural took Dennis Holliday 750-1000 hours to finish.
Rep. Caleb Jones, Adjutant General Steve Danner and Vice Commander John Schuster attended the ceremony.
