From Nov 14th to Dec 24th, 104 area WWII Vets placed their thumbprints into the clay statue.

ThumbprintsPrints
Wayne Shaffer, Jack Blackburn, Ned Zimmerman and Sherman Lehman were among Bedford County's 104 WWII Vets to make their personal mark on the monument.
These thumbprints will be permanently cast into the bronze statue. With the addition of these prints, the clay model is now complete. The clay model is shipping to Montana for the final bronze casting.

The bronze should be completed by May 2014. At that time, we hope to have the funds to build the pedestal and surrounding space for placement.

If we raise the needed funds, we could have this monument completed by September 2014.

The final amount of money we need to complete this project is $55,000. Your donations and Honor Walk Brick Orders can help complete this project in 2014.

Please donate generously.

The Honor Walk
A brick walkway, called THE HONOR WALK will surround the WWII monument and will include bricks engraved with the names and service branch of WWII veterans.

Anyone can buy a brick on the Honor Walk, but only the name/rank/military service of WWII Veterans will be placed on THE HONOR WALK.

Is there a WWII Vet in your family’s history? Honor them by purchasing a brick, making their name and military service a permanent part of this beautiful monument. Your order will also help us finish this project.
