Although it has been four months since the giant golden eagle was dedicated to Veterans Memorial Park on Hillside Road, the work to finish the corner continues.
Personalized bricks are continuing to be sold to help pay for the statue itself and the ongoing additions that the Mesquite Veterans Center has planned. A brass plaque will be mounted on the white marble base below the eagle sometime in the next month or two.
Thanks to Kokopelli Landscaping, the bricks that are purchased are then properly installed as soon as there are 100 or more bricks ready. The Veterans Center hopes to have the next set installed in June or July, if not sooner.
For more information about purchasing the commemorative bricks, contact the Mesquite Veterans Center, 840 Hafen Lane, 702-346-2735.
