Fellowship Square Tucson on the east side is paying tribute to the men and women who died serving our country.

The non-profit care community has built a memorial in the garden area of the facility.

Staff and directors fund raised for several years and teamed up with The Home Depot to make it possible.

Veteran Joseph Schwab spoke about the the significance of the memorial.

There are fewer and fewer world war two veterans left and to see the attention that we are getting is wonderful and to have this plaque here that we can see is like the honor flight going to Washington.

The memorial will be dedicated today near the Fellowship Square Tucson Garden beginning at 9:30 a.m.

Resident Veterans and the public are invited.
