Planned Veterans Mural in Battle Creek Gets Makeover
According to the Battle Creek Enquirer, a 150-foot tall grain elevator in Battle Creek is set to get a fresh coat of paint.
The gray-colored building at 772 E. Emmett St. that's used to store corn, soybeans and wheat will be the canvas for a proposed mural featuring a modern-day American soldier saluting veterans of past wars, with the flag and his family behind him.
On the other side of the building will be a backwards-facing flag, as it appears on U.S. Army uniforms.
When finished, "The Veterans Tower Memorial Mural" will cover 21,753 square feet, making it the largest mural in Michigan and what is believed to be the largest veterans mural in the nation.
