GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Groundbreaking is set to take place on a long-sought veterans memorial in Grand Forks as supporters look to raise money for the project.

A news release from the city of Grand Forks says the groundbreaking and fundraising kickoff for Veterans Memorial Park is scheduled Wednesday afternoon. The 6-acre site for the planned park is northwest of Columbia Mall, and the ceremony is open to the public.

The concept for the memorial calls for a 40-foot-long, 6-foot-tall wall made of black granite and engraved with pictures from wars and conflicts. The memorial would also include black granite obelisks with names of military branches and services.
