CLEARFIELD -- Friends and family members of Utah's fallen soldiers got to see for the first time Saturday a memorial in honor of their service.
It was an emotional experience for most, but one they will never forget.
Tears streamed down the face of one Utah mother whose son was killed at war. His memory will live on, though. His name now is etched onto the new Memorial Wall at 345 Depot St. in Clearfield, along with the names of every other Utah soldier lost at war.
Faye Dolan, whose son died in the war, said, "It lets them know that their sons who gave up their life, at a very young age a lot of the time, that they'll be remembered forever."
Teota Dangle's son died in Iraq. She said, "It's really unbelievable that people would go to this length to make sure they're not forgotten. It's important."
The Memorial Wall is the first to go up inside any American Legion or VFW post.
