DENVER -- There are still plans to build a permanent memorial to Colorado's fallen heroes on the grounds of the state Capitol.
A group of Coloradans launched the idea seven years ago, but it stalled out for a few years because of funding.
Now, it appears to be back on track thanks to a bill signed by the governor two months ago that authorizes a state Fallen Heroes Memorial Fund.
The permanent memorial will feature a bronze eternal flame and square like monument with rose-colored stone panels.
The memorial will feature names of all Colorado service men and women killed in wars since World War I.
Construction costs are estimated at $250,000. So far, organizers have only secured about $50,000 in cash and material donations.
