Preparing the stone

Recently, some concerned Tyrone residents took action to replace the bayonet that was stolen from the historic “doughboy” statue in Soldiers Park. As well as receiving a new bayonet, the statue will be rebronzed and placed back on its stone pillar. Shown is a Tyrone Borough employee as he pressure washes the stone to get it ready for the refurbished statue, which will hopefully be back at Soldiers Park by Veterans Day.
