Kuna VFW memorial looks fantastic
Great job by Kuna VFW Post 7019, who placed this memorial at the Kuna city park ballfields last week. The 2,000-pound, 4-by-4-foot, 2-foot-thick stone memorial now stands between the two ballfields about 25 feet from Second Street. Plans for a veterans memorial at the ballfields were part of a grassroots redevelopment effort that fizzled last year. One of the elements of the plan was a large flagpole and veterans memorial as part of a brick-paved esplanade on the south end of the ballfields. With those plans dead, the local VFW post requested to place its memorial closer to Second Street.
I saw the drawings for the memorial a few weeks ago and thought it looked pretty impressive. But when I went out there last week to snap this photo of it, I was really impressed with how good it looked, especially in full color. Check it out if you get the chance. And thank you to our local VFW for making this happen.
