Eagle scout dedicates sidewalk to veterans

Posted:

Every year, people in St. Joseph have a Veterans Day ceremony, but this year it was a little different.

At Ogden High School, an eagle scout collected money and built a sidewalk for disabled veterans.

He said, it was a rather difficult project, but with help, he made it happen.

"I built this sidewalk to allow easier access and also. . . to not just be a memorial you just drive by but also so you can come up to, sit on those benches over there, reflect on what these men did for America," Willie Campbell said.

The dedication started at 11:00 a.m. Sunday morning. About 30 people attended the dedication ceremony.
