Those Who Serve: Combat veteran honored with memorial in Surprise

The city of Surprise broke ground Monday on an outdoor memorial to honor the late Brian Mancini, a combat veteran from Surprise. The project is being built at Surprise Community Park. The site was selected as a tribute to Mancini's love of nature, fishing and quiet self-reflection. Mancini took his own life in March of 2016 but not before having an impact on many people.
