Honoring luzerne's real life rocky

The land behind the memorial was where Rocky's high school once stood.

The Luzerne Veterans Memorial Project (LVMP) is a council approved community endeavor to enhance and distinguish the existing Veterans Memorial Park with an inspirational military boxing statue and exceptional decorative property backdrop. These developmental strategies will further highlight the Veteran Memorial Park as a historic landmark in Luzerne, Pennsylvania. 

Through the support of the Borough Council and efforts of individuals and corporations, the LVMP plans to erect an inspirational "Go The Distance" statue of ATTILIO "ROCKY" CASTELLANI, Luzerne native, veteran hometown hero, and legendary world middleweight boxing contender.
