A special monument in honor of a fallen veteran will eventually be on display in Lehighton.
Mike and Sarah Wargo approached borough council recently with a proposal to place a War at Home Memorial on the grass “park” between Lehigh Drive and Sgt. Stanley Hoffman Boulevard.
Mike Wargo said the monument is in honor of the 22 veterans who commit suicide on average each day in our country.
Wargo said the couple’s son, Michael C. Wargo, was among those nominated by Mary Baylis from Valor Clinic (Paul’s House).
