763 Bricks of Honor grace Pickens Veterans Memorial Park

Flag Box Final 002By Frank Leist, Chairman, Pickens County Veterans Memorial Park

The Pickens County Veterans Memorial Park has achieved another milestone:  763 Bricks of Honor are now in the park. This memorial is dedicated to honor all veterans who have served our country including those on active duty. These Bricks of Honor are sacred to the memorial and will be available so long as there is room at the memorial.

The Bricks program honors veterans who were or still are Pickens County Citizens as well as veterans throughout the United States.  A veteran does not need to be a citizen of Pickens County to be honored at this Veterans Memorial Park. 

The Bricks of Honor program is reserved for those who can’t return a smile or a salute, not to mention the families and friends who have been left behind.  To honor these Veterans currently serving or who have served a Brick of Honor may be donated in the name of a loved one or directly to a Veteran.  The Bricks of Honor program is open to all regular services members of the military, national guard and reservists.

How do I donate a Brick of Honor?

Veterans Day is fast approaching and this is an excellent way to honor those veterans. We hope you will visit the Veterans Memorial Park on Veterans Memorial Boulevard.

In addition, we have a Flag Box at the veteran’s memorial.  We have collected over 500 flags for disposal.  If you wish to dispose of your American flag properly, bring it to the memorial and place it in this dignified box.  The American Legion with the Boys Scouts of American will take these old flags and dispose of them by giving them their proper burial.
