With less than 40% of needed funds collected, donations are still being accepted for a new Johnson County Veterans’ Honor Roll Memorial. The project cost is estimated at $50,000 and includes six black granite slabs which are to host more than 6,000 names of Johnson County women and men who have served in all branches of the U.S. Military.
