Restoration of the masonry at Harrison’s Honor Roll memorial is complete. The panels of names still have to be replaced with etched granite panels.

Crews with Greensburg-based Allegheny Restoration completed masonry work this week on the veterans’ Honor Roll memorial at Freeport and Springhill roads in Harrison.

Over three days, the company removed mortar between the limestone memorial’s stones, repointed it, pressure washed it, replaced broken stone, applied caulking on its cap stones, and patched some stone, said Ed Draskovich, a sales estimator with Allegheny Restoration.

They also repaired patches on the backside of the memorial and repainted it.

Its panels of painted names of World War II veterans are expected to be replaced with etched granite.

The Harrison Township Honor Roll Restoration Committee expects to rededicate the restored memorial on Memorial Day 2020.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
