I live in Cohoes and noticed a huge undertaking in overhauling the park on Columbia Street and turning it into the Veterans Memorial Park. On Veterans Day, the construction was complete and the park was dedicated.

The Cohoes Veterans Memorial Park is dedicated to the men and women of Cohoes that served our country. As park of the memorial, the city moved the Vietnam Memorial and the Spanish-American War Memorial to the park so that they would all be on one site. There are currently three hundred names inscribed on the memorial and more will be added in the spring.

I drive by this park a few times a day and it is absolutely beautiful. There were so many people working tirelessly to make this an amazing tribute. Hundreds turned out for the dedication and it was a bonus that it was able to be dedicated on Veterans Day.
