The new Veterans Memorial project got the green light from Vanderburgh County Commissioners on Tuesday night. 

The plan is to move war memorials from around Evansville next to the Four Freedoms Monument on the riverfront.

The veterans council has endorsed the plan.

Commissioner Stephen Melcher says Sterling Boiler is donating equipment and labor to create the new Vanderburgh County Veterans Memorial Plaza and Walkway.

Work could begin by March if the weather cooperates.
