The Ennis Veterans Memorial has completed orders and brick placement for its spring update to the walk of brick pavers at the park, with the next brick-laying scheduled in the fall before Veterans Day.

New benches have also been added to the memorial layout, including one for former sniper Chris Kyle and one for Sgt. W.T. Dooney Pierce, Jr., Sgt. Joe Riley Crow and  Private James W. Goodwon that was added by Ennis resident Doris Gerron. A dedication ceremony is planned May 18 — Armed Forces Day — for the additional honor memorials.
