Dozens of veterans were in attendance for the ceremony at the Fort Taber Community Center.

Local politicians took time to reflect on the great strides women have made in the service and the sacrifices they made while serving on the home front.

The memorial project began in 2006 and after donations from all over the country, the $34,500 monument is on displayed next to the Veteran’s Museum.
