Memorial Day paver dedication ceremony held at NIM

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - In honor of Memorial Day, a paver dedication ceremony was held at the National Infantry Museum.

Pavers are a permanent place of recognition on the Museum's Heritage Walk.

More than 233 pavers were dedicated alongside the nearly 4,600 pavers that were previously installed to honor those who served in the military.

Organizers say although there are many pavers at the National Infantry Museum, each one tells a story.

"Each paver tells a story, it could be the story of a loved one or someone they knew or one of their relatives knew," said Steve McClaflin with the National Infantry Foundation. "It's a way of monitoring that person, not necessarily someone who was killed in combat but someone who served."

Family and friends were given the opportunity to make rubbings of commemorative pavers following the ceremony.
