Veterans honored with tree lined boulevard

CONEJOS — The grass is brown where once they walked, but Conejos County veterans are determined to remember no matter what the season.

Established east of the county courthouse and renamed by law, Veterans Boulevard of Conejos County is lined with trees ordered through the county Department of Veterans Affairs and planted by volunteers.

They are mostly growing and established, with plaques showing the veteran honored by the tree.
Orlando Gallardo, retired veterans service officer and a group of fellow veterans ensures they are maintained.

For more information, call Conejos County Office of Veterans Affairs, CVSO Robert Lockwood, at 376-6725.
