Find out more about the event HERE.
The Veterans’ Memorial in Moncus Park will be a place of remembrance and respect for veterans and their loved ones. Throughout the planning and design process for the park’s master plan, and specifically for the Memorial, Veterans have been engaged every step of the way. The involvement of veterans of all ages was important to ensure that this beautiful space will serve the needs of many different types of Veteran events, including memorial ceremonies, military weddings, holiday celebrations, and much more.
The semi-circular memorial space will feature large stone tablets inscribed with the history of American military conflicts throughout our nation’s history. In addition to serving as an educational experience for all ages, the Memorial will also be a place of quiet and reflective gratitude for the sacrifices of the men and women who have served our nation. It has the endorsement of the Veterans’ Action Coalition, comprised of leaders of several regional Veterans’ organizations in Acadiana, who have also been supporting fundraising efforts toward the Memorial by selling both brick pavers and seat-wall inscriptions to honor or memorialize someone who has served.
