Brown Cty Vets Memorial Expansion 09 Feb 12

The Brown County Board on Tuesday unanimously approved a proposal to expand the Veterans Memorial at the Brown County Courthouse in New Ulm. The plan calls for adding a total of 12 granite tablets to the memorial, which will provide the space for an additional 1,632 names. The project will be funded entirely by the Brown County Veterans Council via fund-raising efforts, and will not have any financial impact on Brown County. Funds continue to be raised, and a project completion date has not yet been set. The existing Brown County Veterans Memorial was dedicated in November of 1999, and is running out of space for additional names.
