The next phase of the Veterans Walkway of Honor is under way in Danbury. The walkway is made up of bricks engraved with the names of veterans from all branches of the armed forces. It's located at the Danbury War Memorial and leads from the building to the memorial monuments. Organizer Mary Tiecholz says they only need a few dozen more bricks to complete one side of the walkway.
377 bricks engraved with the names of veterans are already in place on the walkway. Just 50 more are needed.
The deadline for ordering a brick for a loved one is April 28th. All bricks ordered by that date will be installed in time for the Memorial Day Parade. The prices range from $100 to $250. The bricks are either 4-by-8 or 8-by-8.
Bricks may be engraved with the name, rank and service branch. Profits from the fundraiser will go directly to the Danbury War Memorial with a portion of the proceeds from each brick sale going to the Wounded Warrior Project.
