A few hundred people gathered Saturday at Veterans Memorial Park to dedicate a memorial honoring service members from Napa County who have died in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The monument, named “Fallen But Not Forgotten,” was unveiled Saturday at the corner of Third and Main streets, thanks to the efforts of Alyssa DeBenedetti, a 2012 Napa High School graduate who proposed the monument and spearheaded the project.
For months, DeBenedetti contacted veterans’ organizations, city officials and others and raised about $13,000 to make the 4-foot-tall bronze sculpture a reality. (read more)
