MANKATO, Minn. — A Vietnam veterans’ memorial in Mankato is expanding.

Organizers plan to merge the former BMX track property into the nearby Vietnam Veterans Memorial along Stoltzman Road.

John Domeier is a St. Clair veteran who designed the original memorial 20 years ago. He hopes to have firm plans for the expansion early next year.

He said he might take advantage of a stream separating the track from the existing memorial. He says it could be a symbol of the transitions between young man and soldier, then back to civilian life.
