YAKIMA, Wash.-- Perry Technical Institute unveiled a new veteran's memorial on their campus Thursday.
The monument was inspired by a student created design to pay tribute to the men and women who serve in the military.
Perry's Veteran's Alliance raised the money to build the monument.
Students and veterans say it's great to see the school supporting local vets.
"Perry recognizing veterans is a good thing for veterans coming back. They can realize that there is something to hope for, careers are out there, people are here to support us," said Erik Hansen, a current Perry Tech student and Air Force Veteran.
The monument is located near the front entrance of the school for anyone who wants to take a look.
