82 years later, San Francisco finally gets its war memorial

SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco will finally dedicate its war memorial, 82 years after it was promised to veterans.

The memorial called Passage of Remembrance is located on Van Ness Avenue, at the east end of the courtyard between the War Memorial Opera House and the Veterans Building.

The space was set aside for it in 1932, but lack of funding and arguments over design delayed construction.

The $2.5 million memorial will be dedicated Friday at 3 p.m., timed to the Blue Angels' performance over the Bay.
