Douglas Vose was a special forces soldier from Concrete who was killed during combat in Afghanistan in 2009.
Michael Frank of Seattle says being a professional soldier was Vose’s passion.
He says Vose’s friends, family, and fellow soldiers are planning to honor his memory with a life-sized bronze statue.
They hope to dedicate the memorial at the concrete high school grounds with a ceremony on July 27, two days prior to the 4 year anniversary of his death.
The group needs $40,000 to build the memorial, and so far they have raised over $11,000.
