Recently, my sister and I made a road trip which included a visit to Veterans Memorial Park in Dent, Minnesota. If you’ve never heard of Dent, it is a small town (pop. 194 from the 2010 census) located in Otter Tail County, Minnesota, near Pelican Rapids. The photos published here are ones I shot the day of our visit.
I didn’t know this special memorial even existed until a few months ago when I came across it on facebook. I did a little research and found an article on the Fergus Falls Journal website. http://www.fergusfallsjournal.com/2009/08/02/dent-unveils-veterans-memorial/
The Dent American Legion Post 148 designed, built and dedicated this Memorial to Veterans in July of 2009. The title of the memorial is “All Gave Some – Some Gave All”. The memorial represents all branches of the military and features the names of veterans from this area in Minnesota, including my father, grandfather and four uncles.
The memorial is located in the city park on the north side of town along Highway 108 in Dent, Minnesota.
