Three walls would list the names of those killed in action during Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom.

"For other people like myself, I haven't lost anybody over there but it's just to show support for the United States soldiers, military that's over there fighting for us," said John Wilson, Vietnam era veteran.

The plans continue with an additional opportunity to purchase memorial paving stones to honor family or friends who have served or are serving in the military.

"My son's daughter can go somewhere and it doesn't have to be a cemetery. It can be a place of joyful remembrance," said Denise Lange, who lost her son in 2009 when he was involved in a head-on collision while he was on-duty in Texas.
