First Wall of Honor digital billboard placed in Minot
Daryl Kramer family members gathered at Homesteaders Restaurant in Minot for the unveiling on Tuesday of the first Wall of Honor digital billboard installed in the city.
The family donated the digital billboard that includes the late Daryl Kramer, who served in the U.S. Army from 1943-1953.
The digital indoor billboards honor local heroes – men and women who have served or are continuing to serve this country and their communities.
A nonprofit statewide organization, The Wall of Honor has placed about 40 digital billboards in the state so far, said Dennis Beck, who is with the organization. Beck was in Minot for the placement of the billboard at Homesteaders Restaurant. He said they plan to reach 100 digital billboard placements by the end of this year. If they reach that number, then they plan to place 100 per year for three years.
The digital billboard placed in Homesteaders Restaurant has close to 350 slides of active-duty military members and military veterans, along with first responders. Each slide is shown for about seven seconds as the slides are presented on the billboard.
A Wall of Honor digital billboard will also be installed at the Minot Moose in the next two weeks, Beck said.
