To celebrate this momentous occasion, SGC|Peoria will be selling commemorative bricks that will line the entryway of the future shooting range. Upon completion of construction, the engraved bricks will be unveiled to the public.
The four-inch-by-eight-inch bricks will cost $50.00 each, and purchasers will be able to engrave their names, and various messages, in 60 characters or less, on the brick pavers. Various military and armed forces insignia will also be available.
Proceeds from the brick sales will benefit Fighter Country Partnership (FCP), a leading community support and advocacy group for the aid, operation and preservation of Luke Air Force Base.
