BRASHER FALLS -- A four-year effort to establish a veteran's memorial on the banks of the St. Regis River in Brasher Falls culminated Saturday with the dedication of the A-4 exhibit at Veteran's Memorial Park.

A monument placed at the base of the A-4 reads, "In memory and honor of all who have served."

It is on the St. Regis River across from the town office.

The Skyhawk was an aircraft carrier-capable ground attack aircraft designed for the U.S. Navy and Marines.

It played key roles in the Vietnam War.
