OPELOUSAS, La. (AP) - In anticipation of many visitors in the near future, volunteers at the St. Landry Parish Veterans Memorial placed hundreds of engraved paving bricks on the Walk of Remembrance that leads to the monument. Each brick is inscribed with the name of a local veteran.
The Daily World reports Pat Mason-Guillory, who has headed the project since it began 10 years ago, this past week began laying out the bricks with the help of about 20 committee members and volunteers.
She said the only element that remains are the five engraved granite panels that will line the pentagon-shaped platform at the center of the monument.
