New names added to Veterans Trail in Coralville

Posted:
CORALVILLE (KWWL) -

Seven military veterans received honors at Coralville Lake Monday. Their names are now on a granite stone at the head of the Veterans Trail.

They were nominated by the public and chosen by a special committee.

Richard Elliott served in World War Two.  He was happy to see so many people turn out for the event.

"I've got a lot of local friends, a lot of service friends here, and it's been a great day," said the veteran from Lone Tree.

The names of veterans began showing up on those stones back in 1997, 9 years after the Veterans Trail was created.

The Veterans Trail has been in Coralville for more than 20 years.
