Mayor Tom Henry joined local veterans, City Councilman Tom Didier and park officials Friday in rededicating a World War I memorial moved to McCulloch Park.
The memorial, installed on Nov. 11, 1924, had been located behind a fence on the grounds of General Electric for the last 89 years. It has hundreds of names on it, all GE employees who served in World War I. Included are the names of six GE employees who died in the war.
Journal Gazette columnist Frank Gray wrote about the memorial in November.
The rededication of the WWI Memorial is a tremendous tribute to those who gave so much for our freedom, Henry said in a written statement. McCulloch Park is a great location for the memorial, and the city of Fort Wayne is honored to have a role in paying respect to our veterans.
