BRUNSWICK, Maine (WMTW) - A groundbreaking ceremony was held Monday for a new memorial to honor veterans.

The current monument is part of a plan that will include 12 posts representing major U.S conflicts.

David Watson, Veterans Plaza committee, said fundraising hasn't been easy.

"We went from being panicked about a $250,000 project, to exceeding $500,000 in 18 months," Watson said.

The plaza will include 445 "honor blocks" that are sponsored by family and friends.

Organizers expect it to be complete by Veterans Day.
