The Veterans Tribute area is located at Grange Park in Centre Hall.
It remembers Prisoners Of War and pays respect to those who are still Missing In Action.
The project got off the ground last year with a flag pole installed on the fairgrounds inside of gate four.
Patti Long and her family have taken the project several steps further
In honor of Patti’s brother Air Force Major Lewis Smith the second
Who was shot down over Laos in Asia on may 13th, 1968 and is still missing in action
“Keep it in everybody’s mind so we don’t forget you know, we are all getting older, and we need our children to follow our footsteps, just like we followed our parents footsteps, and if it wasn’t for these veterans, we wouldn’t have anything.”
The project will need about $80,000 total and they have a little over half so far.
