A new bench has been placed in Centertown Plaza and dedicated to the National D-Day Memorial and those who served on D-DAY. The bench bears the logo of the Memorial and complements the current Overlord Arch mosaic in the plaza’s brick work, as well as the light pole banners that hang throughout the Centertown area. The dedication was attended by representatives from the Town of Bedford, Bedford County, the National D-Day Memorial, and Bedford Main Street.
The addition of the park bench with the National D-Day Memorial logo further connects our community’s history to our nation’s monument to D-Day. The town itself is a living monument to those who served and sacrificed and this important addition illustrates the profound pride our community feels toward all of our veterans and to those who never returned home.
Additional benches will be placed in the future.
