Recognize Your Veteran at Greene County Veterans Memorial Park

Recognize Your Veteran at Greene County Veterans Memorial Park

WAYNESBURG – Greene County Salute to Veterans Committee is encouraging anyone that would like to honor a veteran with a brick at the Greene County Veterans Memorial Park to submit their orders as soon as possible.
Greene County Salute to Veterans committee is dedicated to honoring our veterans and preserving their military contributions. Developed from the idea of the late Rick Black, veteran of the Vietnam War, a permanent monument has been erected on county property at 900 Rolling Meadows Road. Thus far, more than 600 veterans are recognized on four granite tablets at the Memorial Park. The committee is inviting additional veterans to be recognized to fill out the fifth and six granite tablets.

Perfectly situated near the Greene County Historical Society Museum and within sight of the World War I Memorial, the Veterans Memorial consists of a black granite centerpiece with all branches of service recognized. Arranged outward from the main memorial are large, gray granite tablets bearing veterans’ names engraved on both sides. Each monument holds 150 names.  The fifth and sixth tablets will be the last opportunity to recognize a veteran for the foreseeable future. There are approximately 170 bricks available.

The park is not just for Greene County Veterans, but for all veterans; alive or deceased. If you would like to remember and honor a veteran, now is the time to order your brick. Special requests for grouping family names or friends together are accepted as space permits. Bricks cost $200 for the interior and $150 for the exterior of the gray granite memorials. Memorial benches are no longer available.

Order forms are available through Facebook @GreeneCountyVeteransMemorialPark or email: cmhart@windstream.net. For more information, please call Connie at (724) 852-1252.
