Local Veteran Makes Special Visit to Veteran’s Memorial Park
By: Mary Balstad
Fosston, MN — Last weekend veteran Harry Sandry visited the city of Fosston and made a special stop at the Veteran’s Memorial Park located along Highway 2 East. The Veteran’s Memorial Park in Fosston honors those who served and are serving by displaying unique pieces of military equipment and memorabilia. This stop was notable as Sandry was finally able to see the outcome of a gracious donation made by him and his wife. The donation was to put a memorial statue of an army saluting soldier in the park. Sandry was not able to see the formal dedication of the statue last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. City Administrator Cassie Heide spoke about Sandry’s visit and what it meant to the city of Fosston.
More information about the Veteran’s Memorial Park can be found on the City of Fosston website.
