New Red Bay park should be named after veteran who fought on D-Day

I am 15 years old and I am currently trying to get the city of Red Bay to name their new park after a purple heart recipient who fought on D-Day.

I have talked with the mayor of Red Bay and he has been very helpful, but still I need the support of the community towards this project.

The recipient, Merideth Bostick,  was a loyal citizen of Red Bay his whole life.

He was the grand marshal in at least one of the city’s parades, and I want this park to be dedicated to him and all veterans.
