A Rhode Island nonprofit that helps veterans says it's moving its memorial to U.S. service members killed in action. Operation Stand Down Rhode Island said Friday that it will place boots at Fort Adams State Park in Newport for Memorial Day weekend. The "Boots on the Ground for Heroes Memorial" was in Roger Williams Park in Providence over Memorial Day weekend for the past three years. The nonprofit displays nearly 7,000 boots, one for each service member killed in action since Sept. 11, 2001.
