The photo below shows Sandra Priest the artist, Leigh Gardella-Wood and LeNette Van Haverbeke. This sculpture is dedicated to the Gold Star Military families in the area.  Leigh is a woman who had the desire to bring a great 9/11 memorial to her community and LeNette was instrumental in helping with all the details.  LeNette designed the base for this sculpture.  When she went to order the granite for the base, she just so happened to call the same company that placed all the engraved black granite around the reflection ponds at the 9/11 memorial in NYC.  When they found out this was a 9/11 memorial with an authentic piece, they told her she only should consider this granite.  

This memorial sits at the left facing side of the VFW Post 7448 War Memorial.   A cannon, bookends the opposite side as several military and patriotic flags fly in the center.
