I took this clip about 5 minutes after the gates opened and before the concert . The video board ran and showed the sponsors whenever the headliners were not on stage.

I wanted you to have a look at the memorial the day after the concert. We work Sunday night to make sure the memorial is ready for Monday morning.  I can't really share the photos here, but I am taking administrative authority to share this with you.  It's what it is all about.

The Coleman Veterans Memorial

"What it Means"

     In May 2007, the Zylman Family lost their son Casey in Iraq. They wanted to do something to honor Casey’s memory. Randy Zylman, his father, served with the 25th Infantry Division in Vietnam, and Casey also served with the 25th Infantry as a Calvary Scout during Operation Iraqi Freedom. After much thought, it was decided that they wanted to honor the Coleman Community and all Area Veterans with something bigger. The Coleman Veterans Memorial Committee was founded.

There are 3 walkways
     
     There are 3 walkways leading into the center of the courtyard. They represent the service men and women who answered the call to duty, coming together from all directions, walks of life, and their own personal reasons to serve our nation and become America's defenders.

 

The outer circle:
     
     The outer circle represents how the individual services circle together to protect our country and how we are unified as one nation and as brothers and sisters. All 5 service flags representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard are on the perimeter of the circle.

 

Bricks of Honor
    
      The "Bricks of Honor" are what make up the inner walkway. These personalized bricks honor those who served our nation, and they consist of Coleman community members, Midland County, Isabella County and people all over our country who have purchased a brick to honor their loved one or friends who have served.

 

The Center
     
     The center is where our memorial statues are placed. The Soldiers Cross has been a symbol of a fallen comrade since we began defending our shores. The first soldier is a shade of brown which depicts the living. He represents the Gulf War, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom. This Soldier is walking into the courtyard to honor a fallen comrade. The 2nd is that of a Woman Combat Soldier (First of its kind) she is also a shade of brown. She also represents Gulf War, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom standing beside her brother to honor the fallen. We've also placed a Military Working Dog to represent our Canine Soldiers who also fight alongside our men and women and help protect us.

 

The remaining statues
     
     The remaining statues are a shade of white. They represent the spirits of those who gave their lives in those wars. It also displays how their motives were pure when they served. The 3rd Soldiers Statue is from the Vietnam Era. His hand is reaching out to his battle buddies shoulder to offer strength. The 4th is from Korea, the 5th is from WWII, and the statue in the back coming in and stepping up to the center is from WWI. They are all filing into the courtyard to honor and console a brother.

 

VFW memorial VFW memorial
    
      There are 2 other war memorials in the front of the courtyard placed on either side of the American Flag. These are the 2 original Veterans Memorials from the VFW memorial. They were moved here from their original resting place to be a part of this special Memorial. Our Nations Flag is centered on the memorials. The POW/MIA Flag is seated to its left, and the State of Michigan flag is on the right.

 

The Statues
    
      The Statues are facing away from you as you walk into this memorial so that when you visit our beautiful memorial, you will be walking into the courtyard along with the soldiers, taking in all the names of those who served, to those who paid the Ultimate Sacrifice, to pay tribute, honor and reflect with them. This memorial is an educational tool to show the cost we have paid to be a free nation.

 

We came into service as individuals, we left as brothers and sisters, as a family, who fought and died for each other. 
So come and visit our memorial! In conclusion, we would love for you to come help us educate the youth, while also being a part of something special in our community. 

 

"United by Sacrifice" 
That is the meaning of our memorial. The original one stands at the legendary Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, home of the 25th Infantry Division. They have allowed us to share their memorial from across the Pacific! 
Honoring those who served, Dedicated to those who sacrificed!
