Veterans Seek Donations For Commemorative Bricks To Place In Monument

SAN BERNARDINO ( — The 63rd/445th Norton vets are constructing a monument that will stand outside the soon-to-be completed Norton Air Force Museum but they need the public’s help to defray costs.

They’re selling bricks (for $100 a piece) that will be placed in the monument with permanent laser inscribed messages.

Honor a loved one, celebrate the life of a good friend — the vets aren’t even asking that the person you honor be a veteran. They want to show appreciation for those who served Norton and the surrounding communities.

Ed Jeffries, a retired Air Force Master Sgt., told CBS2 and KCAL9, the monument will honor veterans and civilians alike. “We will honor anybody. They don’t have to be veterans. Police officers, firefighters, anyone you want remembered.”

In all, hundreds of bricks are needed.

Call Jeffries at (909) 889-1733 or Mike Osburn (909) 864-1388 for more information or to order.
