The next phase of the Veterans Walkway of Honor is under way in Danbury. The bricks engraved with the names of veterans from all branches of the armed forces are located at the Danbury War Memorial and lead to the memorial monuments.
450 bricks already line the walkway.
The deadline for ordering an engraved brick is the 27th, and they will be installed in time for Memorial Day. Profits from the brick sales go directly to the Danbury War Memorial Association and other local veteran organizations.
A new addition will also be added to the walkway this year. Twelve granite pillars, each with a military medallion will be installed, with a bronze plaque listing the six veteran organizations in the city. They are Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #149, American Legion Post #60, Disabled American Veterans Chapter #25, Marine Corps League Hat City Detachment, Catholic War Veterans Post #1042, and Korean War Veterans Association.
