MOUNT CARMEL — The monument to Mount Carmel military hero Gen. James M. Gavin was successfully moved to its new location Thursday.

A two-man crew from Earl Wenz Monuments Inc., Breinigsville, spent some five hours dismantling, lifting and transporting the four-piece granite structure from its old location at the now-closed American Legion Post 91 along the Avenue and re-erecting it a few blocks away at the northwest corner of Second and Oak streets in the downtown.
