The public can also purchase bricks online at www.MesquiteVeteransMemorial.org.
All bricks will be included in the memorial's construction and will be placed on the border of the walkway.

The Mesquite Veterans Memorial is a community project to build a place to honor all military veterans and their families. The memorial will include a plaza, an area of recognition for those from Mesquite killed in service, and various other tributes to military service. The memorial is expected to be completed in 2020.
