A brief ceremony will take place during the dedication before the plaque is unveiled. Speakers will include Jim Thorpe Mayor Michael Sofranko; Carbon County Veterans Affairs Director Henry Desrosiers; Col. Mark Baustin, representing the governor’s office; state Rep. Doyle Heffley; and Brad Hurley of state Sen. John Yudichak’s office.

All veterans, as well as the public are invited.
