The first in a series of cement bricks was laid this week for the new Two Strike Park War Memorial. The long road to a new memorial wall began in 2007 when members of the American Legion Post 288 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1614 wanted to add the name of Nick Steinbacher to the existing memorial wall.

Steinbacher, a Crescenta Valley High School graduate, was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 5th Calvary Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division. He was killed on Dec. 10, 2006 when a bomb exploded near his vehicle.

It was discovered the memorial wall was not stable enough to add any names so veterans started a campaign to build a new wall. The money was raised this year and the construction has begun.
