Carencro Begins Construction of Veterans Memorial

  After a year of planning, the first shovels of dirt were turned today at Carencro City Hall for a brand-new Veterans Memorial.
   Local veterans joined Carencro Mayor Glenn Brasseaux and other city leaders in breaking ground for the new memorial and to officially begin construction.
    The Carencro Veterans Memorial will feature a plaza of bricks engraved with the names of military veterans in the area.  Another feature of the memorial is a series of granite soldiers honoring local veterans who were killed in action or are listed as missing in action.  Construction on the memorial is expected to be completed by this fall.
