JONESBORO, Ark. -- People who came to pay respect to America's fallen heroes of war saw the new additions to the Craighead County veteran's memorial today. Plaques with names of veteran's organizations now face the almost four thousand bricks on display.

Pearl harbor veteran Denver Sauls says he admires the memorial in the center of town. "They've done a really good job with this. I've got mine and my brother's bricks over there. I've got four brothers (that were) in world war two." 

The brick display has a special index to help family and friends find the brick of friends.
