The cost of an engraved and installed brick is $250. Proceeds support the ongoing maintenance of the Battle Ground Veterans Memorial. The beautiful memorial, located in Battle Ground’s Kiwanis Park was fully funded and constructed by donations, evidence of the community’s commitment to recognizing those who serve. The names of thirty-one Honored Veterans, local men who died in service, are engraved on the memorial’s wall.
