  The Veterans Tribute Tower will soon make its way from Cincinnati, Ohio to Fort Walton Beach.  The tower’s long journey begins on Saturday. Delivery of the tower is the first of several scheduled events to honor military veterans through November 11th.

The Veterans Tribute Tower has been several years in the making. It was constructed at the Verdin Bell Company’s foundry in Cincinnati. The same company poured and cast the tower’s Freedom Bell using their mobile foundry in September at Uptown Station.

The city of Ft. Walton Beach soon will have a permanent place for residents to show their respect and appreciation for veterans in the community. A Veterans Tribute Tower of Northwest Florida will be constructed at the main entrance of Beal Memorial Cemetery.
