WEST HAVEN, March 29, 2023 — West Haven Veterans Council members and city officials will dedicate Phase 15 of the brick Veterans Walk of Honor in Bradley Point Park at 5 p.m. Saturday, May 27.
All veterans are invited to participate in the seaside ceremony, which will feature a flag-raising, an invocation and a wreath-laying, as well as remarks by Mayor Nancy R. Rossi and Veterans Council President Dave Ricci.
The public is also invited.
In November 2006, the Veterans Council began the first of 15 campaigns selling bricks to memorialize vets on the 100-yard Walk of Honor between the William A. Soderman and Vietnam Veterans memorials.
The bricks, which cost $75, have charcoal lettering for personalized messages.
About 2,900 bricks have been installed to date, including 58 for Phase 14, which was dedicated June 4, 2022.
Stay tuned for details.
