“On Friday, November 19, 2021- Valley Garden Club of Bay County took possession & delivered to the Veterans Park Bay City Michigan, a life-size, metal rendering of the Iwo Jima sculpture. This unique metal sculpture was escorted to the Park by the Proud Veterans Motorcycle Club. Serenus Johnson Construction placed the impressive sculpture on it’s permanent home once it was delivered. This work of art was created in MICHIGAN by Matt McPherson of My Metal Medium located in Mesick.
