Remembering All Veterans
Freedom needs constant protection. Over the years many men and women from around the country have answered -and are answering- the call to protect the way of life everyone in this country has enjoyed for over 230 years.
Whether in wartime or peacetime, many men and women have answered the country’s call to service. They are people you either know directly or indirectly. They are relatives, friends, neighbors, fellow church members, and folks down-the-street. They are people whom you know. They may have served in the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Vietnam, or Korea. They may be currently serving in Afghanistan, Iraq, or any other part of the world.
There is no residency requirement for
purchasing a Veterans Brick Paver.
All Veterans deserve to be honored!
