Moncus Park Veterans Memorial

Moncus Park Veterans Memorial

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 numerous veteran families 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. Our co-chairman of the Veterans Memorial Committee at Moncus Park, Dr. Skip Palmintier, says, "Wow, we have finally made it! The Veterans Memorial at Moncus Park can now celebrate those men and women who have served our country in the U.S. Armed Forces since our War for Independence almost 250 years ago. This beautiful park, which has enhanced our city and community, was made possible by generous and hard-working folks, but would not even be a whisper in the wind without our veterans’ service for our country's freedom.”
