HALE CENTER, TX (KCBD) - A beautiful memorial welcomes visitors as they enter Hale Center.
The Area Veteran's Memorial Wall was dedicated on July 4, 2003 and was the dream of Eugene Heath and his late wife Janie.
While the original plans were fore about 100 to 150 names, the project grew to include almost 600 names on the wall and two side columns.
Mr. Heath hopes the memorial will also convey to the area's youth that freedom isn't free.
