The registry is an opportunity for you or a loved one to tell your military story which will be placed on a website with "read only" access. This website will enable anyone who wishes to read a military story of any veteran who has a paver in the monument paver garden an opportunity to do so.

Your story will become permanent history in the registry for your relatives and friends to view in the future. Each story will be keyed to the respective paver to enable locating a paver in the garden.

Anyone who has served in the US military and was honorably discharged can buy a paver and submit a story. Families may wish to honor or remember a family member or friend who served our
country. The pavers will be engraved with the veteran's name, branch of service, and era in which they served.

To order a paver fill out the form attached to this brochure and send to the "mail to" address provided along with $250.00, one paver per form. If you need additional forms, please call the number listed below.

The pavers will be 16"x8"


Even though the sale of pavers is expected to fund the cost of the memorial construction, your tax exempt donations will be gladly accepted. They may be in memory of a loved one or a friend who already has a paver in the garden or a donation for the maintenance and upkeep of the monument and registry.
