Inserted in today's Echo Press is a special salute to the Alexandria Veterans Memorial Park. This 12-page section, which is also featured on the Echo Press' magazine and special section site, Issuu, includes a timeline, photos and articles about how the park came to be.

It also includes comments from visitors as well as stories behind the names found etched in the granite monoliths.

The park officially opened this month. For more about how you can honor a vet, visit the Veterans Memorial Park website.
