Toledo Memorial Park unveils new memorial to WWI veterans

TOLEDO (WTOL) - Toledo Memorial Park had a special unveiling Sunday evening.

The park unveiled a memorial tablet of black granite, engraved with over 300 names of Lucas County soldiers and nurses who died during World War I and can be seen near Veterans Tower.

The names of those lost used to be at the base of trees planted in a field, that later became the cemetery.

The new memorial puts them all in one place for people to pay their respects.
