A local veterans memorial is here just in time for the Fourth of July.

A dedication ceremony in St. Johns unveiled the Clinton County Veterans Memorial today.

All county veterans and military service organizations were encouraged to attend.

The celebration included a howitzer salute and a helicopter fly-over.

The memorial includes a black granite monument dedicated to all county veterans.

It's surrounded by seven flag poles.

The memorial took eight years and $200,000 to complete.

Citizens, businesses, service groups and out-of-state veterans helped fund the project.
