Public art and public recognition of history is always a good idea. Especially relating to those who protect and serve our country.

I'd like to donate too. But first I'd like to know why it will cost $70,000 for a new pedestal, plaques and benches. I don't want my donation to go in the pockets of the bloated city bureaucracy and greedy contractors--I saw enough of that going in on Iraq with American taxpayer dollars.
