Geocache Description:

Clint Hansen of Audubon designed one of the nicest veteran memorials in the State of Iowa. It sits on Manning's brick Main Street and was dedicated August 17, 2003. Please come view the mosaic, honor our veterans, and try to find The NVG's real name. God bless America!

Congrats to jscforester on the FTF! Over 3 months passed after being published before the FTF.

Tomorrow is Veterans' Day and I thought I would salute those Manning veterans that all made the ultimate sacrifice. In the middle of the memorial, there are 23 men listed who gave their lives to defend this great county.
