West Michigan celebrates Veterans Day honoring the military men and women who served - and are currently serving - the country.
One of those men was Muskegon's T-5 Corporal Clarence Zylman who served in the U.S. Army during WWII in Europe.
Saturday, November 10th his statue was unveiled in his hometown. If you're not familiar with Zylman he was the inspiration for the song "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B."
WGVU spoke with Kurt Troutman, Political Science and History professor at Muskegon Community College about Zylman's life and sculptor Ari Norris about the life-sized statue he created.
