Our main priority is to provide the Veterans of Carroll County an appropriate memorial. We want to have a prestigious place to assemble for Memorial and Veterans Day Programs, as well as a place for individuals and families to have a quiet place to remember their loved ones.
Our original construction of 24 Walls of Honor containing 1,152 individual plaques showing name, rank, and service record was completely filled by 2016. We added 12 additional walls making room for 576 more plaques.
The Killed In Action Walls are up to date and contain all the Carroll County Veterans of all the U. S. wars beginning with the American Revolution.
All Branches of the U. S. Military are represented on the Emblem Wall, which is complete. Our Women’s Wall brings attention to the contribution of women in all wars since the Revolution.
The Contributor Wall of Honor is being updated as new contributors qualify. It contains the names of those who gave $500 or more toward building the park. Without this group of patriotic citizens, we would not have a park
Two new features were added in 2018 highlighting the KIA Walls which brings attention to the 332 killed in action from Carroll County in all wars since the Revolution and a “Missing Man table” remembering all that have yet to be found or returned..
Walkways, an Information booth, brick and plaque index, bell tower, pavilion flagpole, lamp posts, benches, landscaping have been put in place. Our goal is to make this the prettiest and most impressive place in Carroll County because that is what our Veterans and Troops deserve.
Eventually we want to have funds available to care for the park and continue to add names as long as there are wars in which Americans serve their country.
