The Veterans Wall of Honor is displayed a week before and after Veterans Day, Janis DeVore, All Saints director of marketing and development, said in an email. 

“Students create bricks for their family members who have served in the military. The brick includes their family member's name, rank, military branch. If they served during wartime, that information is also included along with a photo of their family member,” DeVore said.
