Omaha Memorial Restored

Neighbors celebrated the re-dedication of the newly revamped General Pulaski Plaque at South Omaha’s Pulaski Park Monday. The first one was stolen.

Neighbors and veterans pitched-in to make things right again. They planted colorful flowers around the stone dedicated to the general and say the area is once again a bright spot in the neighborhood.

Organizer Henrietta Benak said, "How can you express how much it means, that we worked hard for it and it was gone and now it is back, with help from all these people."

As part of the re-dedication the eagle on the stone was changed from a World War II symbol to a Revolutionary War eagle.

General Pulaski was a polish immigrant and a hero from the American Revolution. He was killed in action during the Battle of Savannah in 1779.
