We were told we would only place fifty (50) Bricks of Honor at the Pickens County Veterans Memorial Park. We just placed seventeen (17) more Bricks of Honor at the Veterans Memorial Park and done it again with another milestone for the Veterans Memorial Park. The Bricks of Honor have grown to 858 Bricks of Honor.

This Memorial is dedicated to all veterans who have served our country including those on Active Duty. A veteran does not need to be a citizen of Pickens County to be honored at the Veterans Memorial Park. Bricks of Honor is reserved for those who canít 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 served a Brick of Honor may be donated in the name of a loved one or directly to a Veteran. The Brick of Honor is for all regular service members of the military, National Guard and Reservist.

How do I donate a Brick of Honor or Veterans Memorial T-Shirt?

You will find applications for Bricks of Honor and Veterans Memorial T-Shirts at the memorial, including Pickens County Chamber of Commerce, Community Bank of Pickens County or our website at www.pickensvetmemorial.com. You can contact us at 706.253.0501 or email pickensvetmemorial@gmail.com. Donations for Bricks of Honor is $125.00 each and T-Shirts are $20.00. Donations are tax-deductible
Memorial 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 veteranís memorial. We have collected over 600 flags for disposal. If you wish to dispose of your flag properly bring it to the memorial and place it in this dignified box.
