Albany -- You can help re-plant a living tribute to our military service members.

In 2004, more than 600 "Trees of Courage" were planted along Albany's Westover Boulevard, as a living memorial to military serving in Iraq.

Since then, 82 trees have been lost to the extreme drought or were struck by vehicles.

Now, you can be a part of the rebuilding process.

"This is a special project for our community and it certainly is a big part of our Marine base here.  But trees are very important to you and I as human beings," said Judy Bowles, KADB Executive Director.

If you want to get involved, you can meet Saturday morning at 9:30 in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot, at the corner of Meredyth and Westover, for a brief ceremony.

The new trees will be put in pre-dug holes.

You can also call Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful for more information at 229-430-5267.
