Rome Veteran Proposes New Park Archway

While Veterans Day may be over, one retired vet says he wants the community to continue to remember servicemen and women every day. That's why veteran Thomas Kenealy Sr. wants to put up an archway at the entrance to Veterans Park on the 200 block of North James Street in Rome. He says the archway would serve two purposes: to honor our soldiers and also bring some signage to the park. As it stands now, the park doesn't have a sign or an entrance and Kenealy hopes to change that.

"Very fitting for this park,very different, more noticeable, and it would enhance the whole park I think. It's an honor to of all the veterans who have served, are serving and to those 222 who were killed in action in all the wars of Rome, so a fitting tribute to them," Thomas Kenealy Sr., Rome resident.

Eyewitness News spoke with Rome Mayor Joe Fusco about the archway proposal. He says he approves the idea, and his goal is to have the entrance in place for this Memorial Day in May 2014.
