Connecticut officials have launched a searchable online directory of locations and pictures of veterans memorials throughout the state.

The digital directory, which was introduced to coincide with the Memorial Day holiday, is intended to help state residents find the memorials and encourage interest among people who want to honor veterans.

Linda Schwartz, the state's commissioner of veterans affairs, says the town-by-town directory was inspired by the family of a Connecticut soldier who died in action and encouraged people to visit the sites.

She says they're asking mayors, town managers and other officials in Connecticut's 169 municipalities to forward information about any memorials that aren't included yet.
