FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) - A new monument in Marion County honors local Purple Heart recipients.

The Purple Heart Monument is located at the Marion County Vietnam Memorial in East Marion Park in Fairmont.

Media outlets report that local officials dedicated the monument on Saturday. Seventeen Purple Heart recipients were recognized at the end of the ceremony for their service.

The project was funded in part by the sale of bricks for the memorial.
