      On Tuesday, the Albany City Commission approved the placing of a new Korean War Monument.

      The $10,000 project will go right beside the current World War II memorial stones across from the Albany Civic Center.

      Officials say it will take about 45 days for the stones to be engraved and completed.

      Charles Nicholson with American Post 30 says, "over one and a half million people have died since this country was founded to maintain our freedom. Who knows, 150 years from now I don't know what they'll be teaching in schools but this is to remind people because that granite will be there for a long time."

      The ceremony to unveil the site will be on November 11, 2014.
