A monument honoring 23 McKeesport residents killed while serving in the military during the Vietnam War will be unveiled at 12 noon Saturday.
The ceremony in the auditorium of McKeesport Senior High School, 1960 Eden Park Blvd., is open to the public and also will be streamed live on the district's website at www.mckasd.net, said spokeswoman Kristen James.
Volunteers, including former White Oak police Chief Joe Hoffman, raised more than $6,400 to complete the monument to the "McKeesport 23." Families of several of the fallen service members are expected to attend and tell their stories, James said.
