Amarillo, TX - 130 Amarillo area veterans were honored at a bricklaying ceremony Saturday morning. 

Family members placed an engraved brick with the name of their loved one into the VA's Patio of Honor.  
   
The patio has been expanding since it was first started in 1997.  
     
Funds raised from the sale of the bricks help maintain and supply the Lodge, which provides temporary housing for veterans traveling long distance for care at the Amarillo VA Health Care Center.
