Those who have lost their lives fighting for our freedom will soon have a new memorial in Brownsville.
The granite memorial will list the names and the day the service members died for our country. The names go back three centuries from the Spanish/American war to Iraq and Afghanistan. The organizers say while there are several veteran memorials around the Valley, none are dedicated solely to those who died before returning home. The Brownsville Rotary Club along with the city helped raise $15,000 dollars to fund the project.
The memorial is set to be unveiled in May.
