Three hundred and six pavers will be dedicated Wednesday on the Heritage Walk at the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center.
A ceremony dedicating a new section of pavers will begin at 10:30 a.m. People who purchased pavers are invited to attend.
Graduates of the Officer Candidate School Class of 1969 will place a rose on each of 11 pavers honoring fellow classmates. The mother of private who died during basic training at Fort Benning in August also is expected. After flying an American flag over Heritage Walk, the soldier's instructors will present to his family.
The Heritage Walk pavers can be engraved to honor anyone, whether the person is associated with the military or not. Proceeds from the pavers help fund National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center operations.
