Opening Day at Veterans Memorial Park

Posted on 2011-11-11 by Craig H. Anderson

Opening ceremonies were held today for the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial at Hillsborough County's Veteran's Memorial Park. The event was very well attended by both Veterans from many eras as well as their loved ones and the grateful public they served. This is the first of what will be a series of memorials to veterans of each of the America's military operations.

Genesis had seven of our staff in attendance, including Kyle Thornton, P.E. and James Gilman, RLA who were instrumental in Genesis' contribution of effort to this worthy project as well as our Chairman, Bruce Marriner, P.E. who is, himself, a veteran..
