Bobby Shearin, left, warden at North Branch Correctional Institution along U.S. Route 220 in Cresaptown, stands at a podium Wednesday as Sgt. Corey McKenzie and Sgt. Jason Daddysman with the Western Correctional Institution Honor Guard prepare to place wreaths on a new memorial wall on the grounds of the state prison. The wall, which was dedicated during a ceremony yesterday, was built by the NBCI Maintenance Department from bricks salvaged from the Baltimore Coliseum and cleaned by an inmate crew as part of Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services. Shearin said he wanted a tangible reminder of those who have served America, not only in the military, but in law enforcement, fire and rescue and corrections. Metal letters spell out the sentiment, All Gave Some, Some Gave All.
