The Kridlo family and Atlas Realty Inc. donated $1,000 each to the Pittston Chamber of Commerce Hometown Heroes Memorial Fund.

Atlas Realty, Inc. agents donated a portion of their commission from sales of homes and properties in Pittston, the Wyoming area and surrounding area.

Donations were matched by the broker.

The chamber is accepting donations for the memorial and is also selling engraved 4 x 8 bricks and larger 12 x 12 blocks in a monument walkway.

The memorial, which will include a 50-foot flag pole, four black polished monuments with affixed brass plates engraved with the likeness and information of the memorialized heroes and a pair of search lights, is expected to cost $30,000.

The memorial monuments will also honor Spec. Dale Kridlo of Pittston, 1st Lt. Jeffery DePrimo of Pittston and Lt. Col Richard Berrettini, formerly of Dupont, who were killed in Afghanistan, and State Trooper Joshua D. Miller, who was killed in the line of duty.

The chamber also plans to plant a tree to honor retired United States Army Captain Thomas Jerome "T.J" Hromisin who was severely wounded in Iraq.

Plans are to have the memorial in place in time for a dedication ceremony on the Fourth of July weekend.

For more information about the memorial and donating, call the chamber at 655-1424 or email
