With approval from the Danbury
Council of Veterans,
the Veterans Walkway of Honor was established in 2012 and is a permanent
commemorative walkway lined with bricks engraved with the names of honored men
and women who have served our great country.
Who is eligible to be honored? Anyone who has served honorably in the armed forces or is currently on active duty or any veteran organization.
Bricks may be engraved with the name, rank and service branch of family, friends and loved ones who served honorably in the United States Armed Forces. Bricks may be in honor of those who are still living, missing in action, on active duty or in memory of those who are deceased. Stock logos are also available for engraving.
"We are very excited to have this walkway in Danbury. What better way to honor America's Veterans and to preserve the memory of a loved one who served bravely for our country," said Lee Teicholz, who spearheaded the project.
Mayor Mark Boughton said, "The Veterans Walkway of Honor is a unique addition to the memorials in Rogers Park. As future generations travel the special path, they will be reminded of those who have served our country, and who have fought for our freedoms; hopefully bringing a sense of American pride to each visitor."
