BATTLE GROUND — Community members are encouraged to honor and recognize a U.S. veteran, living or deceased, with an engraved brick to be installed at the Battle Ground Veterans Memorial.
Personalized bricks, purchased by March 1, will be engraved and installed at the memorial in time for Memorial Day this year. Each brick is engraved with the veteran’s name, branch of service and dates of service. The cost of $250 and goes to help support events to honor veterans and the ongoing maintenance of the memorial.
The Battle Ground Veterans Memorial, located in Kiwanis Park, was built and dedicated on Nov. 11, 2015, to honor 31 local sons who died in service to the country and to recognize all U.S. veterans. The memorial was fully funded and constructed by donations, evidence of the community’s steadfast commitment to honoring those who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces and those who died protecting our freedom.
