Hundreds of people gather at Columbia Basin College to honor a new monument dedicated to veterans.

Congressman Doc Hastings and several army vets spoke at the event.

Student and veteran Rolando Proneda said the school needed this monument.

"As a student, it means a lot, it's a wonderful memorial, kind of represents the sacrifice that the soliders had to go through and coming here to school kind of reassures the support the school has for the vets and that means a lot," said Proneda.

The $75,000 monument was funded by CBC's Associated Student Body.
