Honor a Veteran with a War Memorial Brick Engraving

The Fremont County Veterans Service Office is again encouraging families in the Fremont County area to consider honoring a veteran this holiday season by placing an order to have their name engraved on the memorial wall in the War Memorial Park at the Fremont County Airport.    Veterans Service Officer Betty Hanawalt says past holiday seasons have seen a marked increase in the number of memorial brick orders for holiday gift giving.    With about 20 more names needed to complete a minimum engraving order of 50 bricks Hanawalt is hoping the holiday orders will help meet that minimum.

Hanawalt says the name of any veteran, living or deceased, is eligible for engraving on the memorial wall.    The cost to engrave a brick is $50 and the fee must be submitted with the order form.    You can fill out an order form at the Veterans Service Office on the lower floor of the Fremont County Administration Building.   If you have any questions you should call the Veterans Service Office at 276-7400.

Once the 50 brick orders are in hand Hanawalt will arrange for the bricks to be engraved next spring.  After the engraving is completed a dedication ceremony will be scheduled to honor the veterans whose names are being added to the wall.
