Monument dedicated to the Marines unveiled

BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A monument to the United States Marines and Marines of all Wars was unveiled Tuesday morning in Boynton Beach.

About 100 people attended the ceremony at Veterans Memorial Park. The monument includes a map and notes from famous battles throughout history.

The ceremony commemorated the 70th anniversary of the first Marine division landing on Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands in World War II.

"People are not remembering veterans enough. Today [Tuesday], we did the U.S. Marines," said Tom Kaiser, Chairman of the Boynton Beach Veterans Council.

The Boynton Beach Veterans Council plans to unveil at least two to three more monuments at Veterans Memorial Park.
