WEST HAVEN, Dec. 15, 2017 — Members of the West Haven Veterans Council and city officials will dedicate the 11th phase of the brick Veterans Walk of Honor at 5 p.m. Saturday, May 26, in Bradley Point Park.

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 11 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.

About 2,600 bricks have been installed so far, including 100 for the 10th phase, which was dedicated May 27.
