State representatives dedicate bridge to veterans
September 8, 2015
The placing of a wreath at the bridge was made by State Congressman Scott Dianda, and Kirk Schott, representing State Senator Tom Casperson. Dianda and Casperson got the re-naming bill through the legislature and the bill was signed by Governor Rick Snyder.
Dianda said that with a population of 6,200 people there are a known 1,000 veterans and thanked all who had served. He also paid tribute to the families of veterans who never came home. Schott called the percentage of veterans one of the highest concentrations in any county.
As a contingent of veterans stood by and taps was played, the two men placed the wreath at the bridge entrance.
