Veterans Bell Memorial

“We are humbled and honored to be able to contribute to this beautiful Memorial. Our roof will now protect the building that honors all U.S. Military Veterans; men and women who have been protecting our country and our freedom for hundreds of years”. - Frank Farmer President , American Metal Roofs.


What started out as a tribute by Charlie Emmendorfer of CRE Welding in Montrose, MI to honor his father-in-law Richard Velat, a P.O.W. during the Korean War, became the six-foot tall stainless steel bell which will is the centerpiece of the Veterans Bell Memorial. The two-ton bell has taken 2½ years to build.
