VA Bricklaying Ceremony

VA Bricklaying Ceremony

Amarillo, TX - More than 130 bricks were placed honoring area veterans at the Thomas Creek VA hospital in Amarillo today.

This annual event brings together friends and family of veterans who have sacrificed their lives in service to our country.

Every flag day since 1977 families and friends of area veterans have added to the "patio of honor" in front of the VA.

Funds from the purchase of the bricks assist in maintaining and supplying the hospitality house for veterans.

The hospitality house provides temporary lodging for veterans traveling long distances for care.
