WEST HAVEN, May 14, 2020 — Members of the West Haven Veterans Council and city officials will dedicate the 13th phase of the brick Veterans Walk of Honor at 10:45 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11, in Bradley Point Park.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and social distancing restrictions, the event, originally slated for May 23, has been rescheduled to coincide with the annual Veterans Day tribute.

All veterans are invited to participate in the seaside ceremony, which will feature opening and closing prayers, a presentation of the colors and taps, as well as remarks from Mayor Nancy R. Rossi and Veterans Council President Dave Ricci.

In November 2006, the council began the first of 13 campaigns selling bricks to memorialize veterans 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.

More than 2,700 bricks have been installed so far, including 51 for the 12th phase, which was dedicated May 25, 2019.

The Veterans Council has extended the application deadline to Friday, July 17.
