New Veterans Monument in Loxley

Loxley, Ala. (WKRG) - There’s a new landmark in Loxley that you may have already seen if you zip up and down Highway 59 on a regular basis.  The new Loxley Veterans Monument sits at the edge of Loxley Municipal Park, easily visible at any time of day to the hundreds of vehicles that zoom through this major Baldwin County thoroughfare.  The monument pays tribute to all five branches of the military.  Organizers say this is a project that’s three years in the making.

"Very proud, proud that I can honor other veterans I served 20 years in the Air Force, and that’s a thing we do, we honor veterans and we serve veterans," said the man who designed the monument, Ernie Baker.  

It’s perfect timing too: there’s a dedication ceremony planned for the monument planned for Saturday, the day before Veteran’s Day, at Loxley Municipal Park at 10 am.
