Bill Reid and Don Putnam recently visited Georgia to inspect the North Carolina Korean War Memorial sign. When erected at the Park on Fairview in Mint Hill, it will constitute the first phase of the construction.

Reid and Putnam have spearheaded the effort to bring the N.C. Korean War Memorial to Mint Hill. Last week, they finally received the final permits to begin construction. Most of the memorial will be built in the first two phases. After more fundraising, they will add final touches in the last three phases.
