It’s a day of remembrance, but in Berthold — remembering our soldiers will become an everyday occurrence.
A new monument at City Hall recognizes fighting heroes and makes an impact on returning service members.
Alexus Arthur shares more.
“May God bless you all and may God continue to bless America.” said Jared Sherven, ND Army National Guard Captain.
“Honor all our veterans, and who’s currently serving, and those folks that are yet to serve.” said Sherven.
It isn’t free.
“Help to remind us year round of their importance of what they do for us.” said Alan Lee, Berthold Mayor.
It’s our veterans, current soldiers, and military families who let us live free.
“It’s more of a chance to honor the great Americans that have the courage to stand up and defend our country.” said Sherven.
“Berthold dedicated an 18,000 dollar memorial monument to our service men and women of the past, present, and future.”
“It’s just one more, one more thing that Berthold does to help recognize what people have done for us.” said Lee.
For Iraq war veteran and current North Dakota Army National Guard Captain, it means more than words can say.
“This is very personal to me because I’ve had some very good friends that I remember on this day.” said Sherven.
This monument will make remembering more than one day a year.
“It’s taking that time to pause and reflect and remember those great Americans.” said Sherven.
