DULUTH, MN-- Duluth has a new monument to military members, injured while serving.

The State Veterans Cemetery unveiled its new monument to combat-wounded veterans Friday.

It's the cemetery's second monument. The first honors Vietnam vets.

Organizers held a special ceremony to mark the unveiling with Purple Heart recipients in attendance.

They say these vets have seen the worst of humanity, and deserve honor and respect.

"We suffer. The scars and the wounds that we, the things that we live with and seen with stay with us for the remainder of our years on this earth and life," said John Marshall, the Captain of the Duluth Honor Guard.

The group is planning to add a third monument to the cemetery, honoring a local veteran.
