Ridgeland unveils new memorial park

JASPER CO., SC (WTOC) - Local veterans and the community came together to pay tribute to the nation's heroes on Veterans Day with the dedication of a new memorial park.

It took a decade to get Ridgeland's Veterans Memorial Park off the ground but on Nov. 11 a ceremony was held to finally unveil the monument that honors each branch of the military. The park is a place to celebrate and honor veterans both past and present.

Each monument is made out of black granite surrounded by park benches.
