As you enter the breezeway of the Veterans Memorial Museum you will see the Wall of Honor. The Wall of Honor contains the names of thousands of veterans who have served our nation through sacrifice, honor and duty. We will perpetually continue to have space for the Wall of Honor so that veterans or friends/family members of a veteran can add a tile to the Wall of Honor to remember an individual's service to our great nation.
For each $100 donation to the Museum building fund -Tile Project, we will mount a 6X6 inch porcelain tile with a veteran's name of your choice and selected service information. Veterans are considered as anyone who served in the U.S. military service branches of the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Navy, Marine Corps, Merchant Marines, National Guard, and all Reserve Units. This is also for any time period from July 4th, 1776 to present day.
The Veterans Wall of Honor and the Veterans Memorial Museum are national in coverage and dedicated to all who served their country.
Tiles will be numbered and installed in the order they are received. If you wish to honor multiple members of a family, order them at the same time so that they can be grouped together. An index is provided so visitors can look up the location of the tiles of family members and friends.
First Line: Only the name of the veteran. 18 spaces available.
Second Line: Rank, Branch of Service, Years of Service. 24 spaces available
Third & Fourth Line: Information of your choice. 24 spaces available on each line. Some of the information from line 2 can stretch to 3rd and 4th lines.
As you walk through the main gallery of the musuem, You will notice the many plaques mounted above the display cases which bring honor and tribute to veterans of any branch of service, any service connected person, a defense department worker, a unit, ship or aircraft or any US service organization. Each plaque is unique as friends and family members purchase one of the 8" by 10" beautiful black and brass finish and can have engraved anything that brings honor to that special veteran or organzation in their life. Each plaque comes with a branch of service applique and has space for 300 characters so that friends and family members are able to express their appreication in a special manner. In addition to the brass plaque, the museum will provide for mounting a 5" x7" oak picture frame. The family or friend of the veteran can provide a photo to be mounted in the picture frame.
