The Veteran’s Honor Plaza held its first Memorial Day and Veteran’s day celebration in 2001 and every year since our beloved hero’s are once again recognized. Veterans names are listed on monuments underneath the war in which they served, including: World War I, World War II as well as Korean and Vietnam. Bricks were purchased (and can be purchased today) by family members of those living and deceased to make the grounds of the platform of the plaza. Soldier’s names and the years they served are engraved on the bricks. Benches line the outer edges of the plaza. In the center of the plaza stands a tall, thin monument engraved with the seals of the Marine, Navy, Coast Guard, and Army branches of the United States Military. Upon its first Memorial Day, the plaza held a dedication in which several families, friends, government and community officials, and soldiers gathered to honor those who fought for our freedom.
