War veteran to unveil monument

A World War II veteran and county officials are to unveil a war memorial at 11 a.m. Sunday at Route 100 and Mountain Road.

Sam Kemp, a Brooklyn Park florist who served in Europe during the war, donated the monument to the county. It will include a 70-foot flag pole, engraved stone and 600-square-foot flag. Spotlights will illuminate the flag at night. The county is providing space at the corner of Mountain Road and Route 100.

Mr. Kemp has built two other memorials -- at an average of $15,000 each -- in the county. One was erected outside his Ritchie Highway business and another in Glen Burnie in memory of Sgt. Ronald M. Randazzo, the 24-year-old soldier killed in Operation Desert Storm.
