The League of Pretty Good Guys has set Sept. 12 as the dedication/debut of the new Vietnam War Monument Statue. Bedford Borough has approved the date.

Shown above are some of the first statue pieces cast in bronze that were cast in Bozeman, Montana. The pieces will be welded together to form the completed statue.

At right, Bill Wertz poses with the full-sized clay model of the Vietnam statue, prepared by Manns Choice sculptor Wayne Hyde, featuring posthumous Medal of Honor recipient Robert Hartsock of Everett, and his military dog, Duke.
