New London Veterans Affairs Committee to dedicate Veterans Walk of Honor next month
New London — The New London Veterans Affairs Committee, with the backing of city officials, the Parks and Recreation Department and the Riverside Parks Conservancy, has completed the first phase of the Veterans Walk of Honor at Williams Park.
The memorial, located on the corner of Williams and Broad streets, features 56 inscribed bricks honoring veterans from World War I to the present day.
The Walk of Honor project was started in June 2019, and the committee is inviting the public to honor their loved ones who served in the military by purchasing a brick to install at the memorial.
Two sections, roughly 8 feet by 9 feet in front of the memorial, will hold up to 400 inscribed bricks each. Those interested can purchase an inscribed brick for $50 for a 4-by-8-inch brick with up to four lines of text or $75 for an 8-by-8-inch brick with up to six lines of text.
Contact the New London Veterans Affairs office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (860) 440-6691 if interested in purchasing a brick. A dedication ceremony will be held on Veterans Day at 2 p.m. All are invited to attend.
