CBC Killing Bermuda Grass to Make Room for Vets Memorial

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -Work begins this month on a new veterans memorial in the Tri-Cities.

For the past few weeks, ground crews at Columbia Basin College have been killing the grass next to the student hub. That's where Jesse's Landscaping will build the memorial.

The CBC Veterans Foundation and vets attending CBC selected the Kennewick firm's design in a contest held in the spring.

The CBC Associated Student Body is paying the $75,000 to build the memorial, which could be open in time for Veterans' Day in November or early next year.
