TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

For those who missed out the first time around for this memorial paver program, Arizona's Secretary of State, Michele Reagan has revived the program for a limited time. This means individuals or businesses can buy a commemorative brick to honor the courage of those who fought in WWII.  

“Since I became Secretary of State, we’ve received several requests from people who would like to purchase a commemorative paver to be included as a part of the WWII Memorial in Wesley Bolin Plaza,” said Secretary Reagan, in a recent release. “The memorial is a wonderful tribute to the men and women of our military and these bricks are a great opportunity for people to recognize their service.”

The program is open from July 4 to September 2, the 71st anniversary of the end of World War Two.  The pavers, which come in two sizes 4"x8" or 8"x8" and with a donation (tax-deductible) of $125 or $500 the bricks can be engraved from three to six lines will be installed in the fall at the WWII Memorial in Phoenix.

The WWII Memorial in Phoenix was created in 2013 and includes a steel structure that contains the names of the nearly 2,000 Arizonans who died during the war, this wall is flanked by gun barrels from the USS Arizona and the USS Missouri. These two represent the beginning and ending of the war, the pavers are positioned along the walkways around the memorial.  

Interested in purchasing a paver, go online to www.azsos.gov/paver or call the project manager Ashley McCue at (602) 542-6170.
