Veterans Memorial Wall

Veterans Memorial Wall

Powered by the Book of Memories™ Online Tribute

G. K. Chesterton wrote, "Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die." The men and women who served in the armed forces, whether during a time of war, or one of peace, are living examples of that contradiction. Each should be honored and remembered, so that our gratitude never fades.

Our Veterans' Memorial Wall includes the names of those individuals who served the nation, and are now entrusted to our care. If the veteran you are looking for is not here, please enter the name of the deceased or the next of kin in the search box below and click search. You may also view current and past listings to find the name of your veteran. Names are listed alphabetically.
