Fallen hero honored with memorial bench
A simple bench now sits along the edge of New Richmond's Veterans Park, serving as a resting place for visitors of the Armed Services Memorial nearby.
Etched in the black stone is a message of remembrance to a fallen hero who once called this city home.
"In loving memory of AW1 Cory James Helman, Aug. 14, 1979-Jan. 26, 2007," is written in bright white lettering. "I served my country, my job is done. Now I'll serve my Lord, the Almighty One."
