Memorial bricks still available at Korean War Veterans Memorial Park

Bricks are still available for purchase as memorials at the Korean War Veterans Memorial Park at the end of East Fifth Street.

As part of Riverview Park, the Korean Veterans Memorial Park features bricks with the names of military veterans from all branches who served from 1945 to the present day in Korea, including its territorial waters. More than 120 bricks have been installed at the memorial.

They are $50 each. Applications are available from Fred Williams, Korean War Veterans Association Chapter 305 president, at 246-3767.

The "Nevada Cities Complex" at the memorial is a display of four large rocks representing Carson City, Reno, Elko and Las Vegas. It is in regard to the last battle fought from March 26-30, 1953 in Korea. Another plaque will display the 34 names of Nevadans who died during the war.

The chapter meets at 11 a.m. the first Thursday of each month at Veterans Memorial Hall, corner of Curry and Second streets.
