MULLINVILLE, Kan. (AP) -- A new memorial commemorating Kiowa County's military veterans dating back to the Civil War is scheduled to be dedicated this weekend.

Crews have placed six large engraved granite markers containing the names of about 1,800 military veterans from the county on the new memorial in Mullinville, a town of about 250 residents located about 120 miles west of Wichita. The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/16Sug11 ) the memorial will be dedicated Saturday.
