      Bedford Co. Supervisors Donate $50,000 to D-Day Sculpture

      Bedford Co., VA - Bedford County supervisors voted to help fund a statue to honor the 19 young men Bedford lost on D-Day.

      The National D-Day Memorial plans to dedicate "Homage", recognizing the Bedford Boys on June 6th, 2014.

      That's the 70th anniversary of the Normandy invasion.

      Supervisors approved a $50,000 donation toward the $250,000 piece.

      Homage was sculpted by the late Jim Brothers, the artist behind many of the memorial's sculptures.
