Last November, thanks to the Sundt Foundation and Arizona veterans, a bronze medallion that had adorned the 6-foot tall granite marker was restored to the World War I Memorial at Wesley Bolin Plaza in Phoenix, Arizona. This month, Sundt employee-owners provided additional support to restore another piece of the memorial.
Two brass plaques, one telling the story of WWI and the other, a poem written by John McCrae near a Belgian Battlefield, had been neglected and forgotten, until now. Volunteers from Sundt’s Industrial Group installed two granite pedestals that will house the two brass plaques.
The unveiling ceremony on May 18 was nothing short of magical, with a beautiful rendition of the national anthem and a presentation of the colors of the flag.
The completed monument now stands tall as a remembrance of the great sacrifice many men and women made for our country.
