TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - A new memorial in honor of current military members and veterans has been dedicated in northern Michigan.

WPBN-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2aWrIZy ) the Blue Star Memorial was recently revealed at the botanic gardens at Historic Barns Park in Traverse City.

The Friendly Garden Club of Traverse City dedicated the memorial in honor of all of servicemen and servicewomen, both past and present.

Those involved say it’s a small gesture of their appreciation. Garden club member Sue Soderberg says “We forget to thank them and forget to recognize them. So we would like to recognize them for all of their hard work, dedication and sacrifice.”
