Monument Designer To See If Some Other Country Wants To Buy Rejected War Memorial

LEESBURG, VA—Explaining that her design is not necessarily war-specific, Claire Dunham has begun shopping around a rejected memorial she originally created to honor soldiers who lost their lives in the first Gulf War.

Dunham went on to say that there was no reason an interested party couldn't cross out a few words in order to make it an air disaster memorial or a Little League victory statue.
