 Veterans Memorial and Memory Walk

A long time coming, a lot of personal commitment, a lot of dedicated community effort on behalf of those who gave for the community, without regard for the potential personal cost…a walk in the shadows of veterans, close friends and family members without regard for politics, petty grievances or personal vendetta.  This Memorial and Memory Walk is a dramatic visual tribute to the sacrifices made by family and loved ones.
