Memorial stone is dedicated to veterans of all wars past and present. It was installed sometime in November 1967. It was estimated to cost between $1,800.00 and $5,000.00. C.L. Hamrick Memorials LLC, Lexington, Virginia, installed the memorial stone in the Green Hill Cemetery on land donated by the City of Buena Vista, Virginia. The tombstone memorial was dedicated on Sunday, 2 June 1968, at a Memorial Day service. The granite tombstone memorial bears the emblem of The American Legion Post 126 as well as the branches of the United States military services (Army, Navy, Marine Corps & Air Force). It is located just below the flag pole area of the cemetery. It is in good condition. Yearly The Floyd-Davidson American Legion Post 126 members have to clean the lichen off of it prior to the Memorial Day services. Buena Vista City employees mow around the memorial stone, but The American Legion Post 126 members keep the stone cleared of grass and bee nests.
