Cavalier, ND (WDAY/WDAZ TV) - As a way to honor veterans, two statues have been added to a local museum.

Standing six feet tall outside the Pembina County Museum, two statue soldiers made of concrete each weighing about 1,300 pounds, were recently added to the Veterans Memorial. The president of the Pembina County Historical Society says the memorial is a place to remember veterans.

Delores Kemp/Pembina County Historical Society President, "Just to honor our veterans and what they have done for our country, and freedom doesn't come cheap. It comes at a very high price."

Kemps says they have heard positive comments about the statues and they hope to expand the memorial in the future.
