The Veterans Memorial at Moncus Park
The Veterans Memorial at Moncus Park is a lasting symbol of the courage, patriotism, sacrifice, and honor of all who have served. The memorial space features a flag court, flanked by large tablets that commemorate American military participation in key conflicts throughout history. The Memorial also features inscriptions in brick pavers and seat walls that have been sponsored by local Veterans and their loved ones in honor of their service.
The Veterans Memorial was made possible by substantial contributions from Patrick & Ann Herrington, The Lowe Family, James Parkerson Roy Family Fund, Mills Family Foundation, Inc., On Call Band, Pinhook Foundation, Inc., Ramsay Corporation, Schilling Distributing Company, Stanley and Susan Blackstone, Stuller Family Foundation, The Schilling Family, The Beaver Club, and hundreds of community supporters through the ongoing brick paver and seat wall inscription campaigns advocated by the Veterans Memorial at Moncus Park Committee and Veterans Action Coalition.
Throughout the planning and design process for the Park’s master plan, Veterans have been engaged on many levels. Their participation ensured that this beautiful space serves the needs of many different types of military events including memorial ceremonies, military weddings, holiday celebrations, and more.
