Chisholm, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - The newest addition to the Chisholm Veterans' Memorial arrived Tuesday.

A ship anchor, weighing nearly 11 tons, will stand in honor of all Navy veterans.

It was delivered to the site through the work of members of the Chisholm American Legion. The Iron World Discovery Center helped by allowing the Legion to display the anchor, along with the other war memorials, at the site.

The addition of the anchor to the memorial now means that all branches of the military are represented at the Discovery Center.
