Peoria Co. to raise $500K for new war memorial

PEORIA, Ill. (AP) — Peoria officials are hoping to raise $500,000 for a war memorial that will be built at the county courthouse.

The memorial is called “Final Salute” and honors people who served or died in conflicts since World War II.

County Clerk Steve Sonnemaker says the design for the memorial has been approved.

The v-shaped marker will have granite plaques where names will be inscribed. It will also feature statues of three to five soldiers who are “on patrol” in the center.

People will be able to buy engraved bricks to help raise money for the project. They’ll cost $150 or $500 each, depending on the size.
