DANBURY, Conn. -- The Danbury Council of Veterans is offering a unique and permanent way to honor veterans in the city's War Memorial in Rogers Park.

The council is spearheading a drive to install a permanent commemorative walkway lined with bricks engraved with the names of honored men and women who have served our country, says Lee Teicholz, who spearheaded the fundraising campaign. The project is dubbed the Veterans Walkway of Honor.

Anyone who has served honorably in the armed forces, is currently on active duty or is in any veterans organization is eligible to be honored, Teicholz said.

Proceeds will go directly to the Danbury War Memorial with a portion from each brick sale going to the Wounded Warrior Project.

"What better way to honor America's veterans and to preserve the memory of a loved one who served bravely for our country," said Teicholz.

Phase 1 brick sales must be completed by April 15 to allow time for ordering and installing the bricks. A dedication ceremony is to be held near Memorial Day.
