Wounded Warrior memorial planned for Atchison Riverfront
06/07/2021

(KAIR)--A Wounded Warriors Memorial Stone could be coming to the Atchison Riverfront, pending the receipt of donations and Atchison City Commission action on the request.

The matter is among items set to come before the Commission during its late Monday afternoon meeting.

The idea of the memorial is that of citizen Jackie Bowen, who took the matter before the Riverfront Foundation, which has granted its approval, with certain stipulations, including colors and location.

According to a memo sent from the foundation to the City, the memorial stone would be placed “between the two trees that are just southeast of the Courtney Turner Wall,” which stands at the riverfront.

With the proposed memorial meeting the criteria established by the City for such donations, a recommendation to approve placement of the memorial is provided to the Commission by City Staff.

Bowen is now working to raise the $4,400 needed for the purchase of the memorial, in care of Combat Wounded Warriors.
