 ST. PAUL, Minn., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- James Steele Construction Company of St. Paul has been awarded the contract to build the Minnesota Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The memorial will be built on the State Capitol grounds on a 2.4 acre site located to the northwest of the Veterans Service Building.

Construction is anticipated to begin in April, culminating in a dedication ceremony on Sept. 26, 1992.

"Superintendents and tradesmen working on the memorial on weekends and in the evening will be common sight," said Dick Naughton.
