A Palmerton business has donated a handsome sum toward a monument that will honor veterans who were killed in action.

Representatives from Country Harvest Family Market recently presented a $12,000 check to the Palmerton United Veterans Organization.

On hand to give out the contribution were owners Richard Nothstein, Darlene Nothstein, Sherri Anthony and Chris Anthony.

The donation is for the base of the "Some Gave All" monument, where the names of 62 veterans who were killed in action will be engraved.

Joe Uhnak, first vice commander, said the Palmerton United Veterans Organization was "grateful that Mr. Nothstein donated this money toward the base of the stone."

The sculpture, donated by Richard Nothstein, depicts a gun and helmet. It will be surrounded by a wide walkway and standing stones with the names of veterans.
