The city of Sioux Falls Veterans’ Memorial Park Advisory Board will dedicate a new monument Tuesday in honor of Sgt. Isaac Fry at Veterans’ Memorial Park.

The ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m. followed by a patriotic concert by the Municipal Band at 7 p.m. at the park, at the intersection of Bailey Street and Walts Avenue (south of the Casa Del Rey restaurant).

Fry is a recipient of the Medal of Honor for his heroic acts while serving in the Civil War. This dedication will be the ninth Medal of Honor recipient’s citation displayed at the park, including Sioux Falls native Joe Foss.

Community members are encouraged to bring lawn chairs to the event.
