Concrete Pour

All of the forming for the concrete in the upper memorial is complete with the rod and wire in and ready for the first concrete pour which will occur on Saturday, August 22, 2015.

All of the electrical has been completed and the sleeves for the underground sprinkling are in place.

The brick orders we have so far are engraved and ready for placement. We need many more bricks to fill in between the points of the concrete Medal of Honor star.

Put your brick orders in now to be in place before our dedication ceremony on November 11, 2015.

Many of the plans are in place for the ceremony. Our contractors are amazing, we are going to have a beautiful memorial to honor our veterans!

A special thanks to Burgess Concrete for donating the concrete pumper truck and Bimbos pizza for feeding the crew which will have 9 concrete finishers donating their time and labor. Much appreciated everyone!

      Purchase a Brick
      I'm fortunate to still have my 85 yr old Uncle Jim Blaisdell with me. What an awesome way to honor him and let him know how proud I am of him. This is such a worthwhile project!! I've been trying to convince him to participate in the Talons Out Honor Flight to DC, but being in the WWII Air Borne, he said he is not used to "landing" in a plane. God Bless our Vets !!

      Thank you for doing this. My Uncle Merle is buried at the cemetery along with his parents. I was only 6 months old when he was killed in Korea. Not sure when he joined the Army. My Father & his brother, my Uncle Floyd, both served in the Navy during WWII. They to have both passed away. This will be nice to honor them, and to reunited them together as brothers in arms.
