New Murals On Display At Escanaba AMVETS Hall

Posted: Updated:

ESCANABA, Mich. (AP) - AMVETS Post 123 of Escanaba hired a local artist who transformed its basement meeting place and dance hall with two military-themed murals.

The Daily Press of Escanaba reports that retired Escanaba art teacher Harry Nelson painted the murals on two walls in the basement. That is where local AMVETS and the public gather for country music and dancing.

One mural shows the five service branches with an Army tank, Navy boat, Air Force plane, the Iwo Jima Marines memorial and Coast Guard helicopter. There is also a fallen soldier symbol of a firearm inside boots with a helmet on top.

The second mural wall shows an eagle and U.S. flag, with a silhouette of a female soldier facing a male soldier.
