The ribbon was finally cut on Veterans Memorial Walk at Bryant Commons Saturday.

Members of the Veterans Memorial Walk committee, Hinesville Military Affairs Committee, local officials, veteran and Army officials, and others involved in the project officially opened the memorial.

The memorial honors all military branches, including those missing in action and prisoners of war.

Entry to the walk is marked with the American flags and flags for each branch of service. Service members representing each branch raised their flags and Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 789 raised the POW/MIA flag.

Phase I of the memorial was completed after 14 months of construction by the 92ndEngineer Battalion.

Work will continue installing benches, pavers, rails and monuments.
