WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – A White Plains native is repairing a World War I monument by handcrafting an eagle's head with his parents, according to lohud.com.

Graphic artist Joseph Giglio, 54, lives on Long Island, and is here often, visiting with his parents Jack, an Italian mason, and Mary Ann, an art teacher, according to lohud.com.

The original eagle's head on the 1919 monument at Maple Avenue and Post Road was vandalized and never properly replaced, according to lohud.com.

There are plans to rededicate the monument in time for Memorial Day, according to lohud.com.
