in the city-owned Veterans Memorial Park. The All Veterans Memorial will acknowledge
the six branches of military service at the first American flag raising of the battle of Iwo
Jima, and will feature a bronze bust of Charles "Chuck" W. Lindberg, who helped raise the
first flag on February 23, 1945, and was the last flag raiser of both Iwo Jima flag raisings
to pass away. It is anticipated that the total cost of the project is $711,500, with the city
and nonprofit organizations contributing $511,500. This appropriation is not available
