The veterans monument landmark on the Clinton-Massie schools campus is further enhanced with the donation of a new flag pole from the Clinton County Veterans Service Commission (VSC). The new flag pole is taller and can withstand higher winds compared to the prior one. The veterans monument landmark features a brick paver area, and a laser-engraved stone for each military service: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, National Guard, and Navy. Open to the general public to visit, the landmark is lit at night. It was funded by donations, and not by school district taxpayer dollars. Pictured are board members and staff with the VSC, Clinton-Massie representatives, and Clinton County commissioners.
