The American Legion and Adams County will unveil its new Adams County Veterans Memorial Park in Brighton at the Riverdale Regional Park.  Here you’ll find a replica of the battleship, the USS Colorado.  The USS Colorado, launched in 1921, was active in the defense of Pearl Harbor, the Tarawa invasion and the battle of Okinawa, just to name a few.  Her history of supporting US soldiers is deep and volatile -even being fired upon by suicidal kamakazes  before finally getting decommissioned in the year of 1947.  Opening ceremony begins at 10am.
