VETERANS MEMORIAL ~

"REMEMBERING ALL WHO SERVED"

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Where will the Memorial be built?

At the present time we are seeking a location or property that will allow us to build a veterans memorial.

Our own facility was found to have a water table issue at the lower part of our property which would

require substantial financial remediation, so it has become necessary to seek an alternative site.

When will the Memorial be built?

Once we have selected a site, and resolved license and permit issues, the Post will be seeking

In-Kind Contributions from Business' and Companies who can provide labor or materials

to complete the Memorial. 

Who will maintain the Memorial?


The Post will maintain the Memorial.

Who can purchase paving stones?

Any Veteran.

Any Individual wishing to honor a veteran or veterans.
Family or friends of a veteran.

Any Business, Service Club, group and individuals interested in supporting the Veterans Memorial.

(Paving stones purchased by businesses, Service Clubs and non-veteran individuals, 

 will be sand beige in color and placed around the red and grey brick veteran pavers

that will make up the site pad of the Memorial).

What will be the Memorial layout?

New Site drawings will have to be prepared once a site is selected.

The Memorial will have a higher flagpole,

with the American flag and the POW/MIA flag,

and then will have six additional flag poles with the flags of  each branch of service.

Red paving stones & Grey pavers that are 18" X 18" and are for veterans,

will be placed from the American flag in the middle to the point of each service flag in a pathway.

A dedicated area for smaller and larger beige pavers for individuals,

supporters and businesses wil be placed outside the dedicated Veterans Paver area.

What wording can I put on my paving stone?

Most veterans are putting their name, rank, branch of military service, conflict (if any),

and dates served. Some are adding years of service.
Any wording that is not offensive in nature, and honors veterans, will be appropriate.

If you have questions, you may talk to VFW personnel prior to purchasing a paver.
