Dozens of residents, family and friends recently attended the formal dedication ceremony at Nassau County Veterans Memorial Plaza to view the unveiling of more than 200 names of veterans, past and present, which were added to the expanding Walls of Honor in Eisenhower Park.
The memorial already has hundreds of veterans’ names inscribed, with more added each year, since its unveiling a couple of years ago. It is an ongoing construction; veterans’ names are inscribed on the steel panels, which are mounted to the granite walls and dedicated each June by the Nassau County Veterans Monument Fund, Inc.
All veterans, war or peacetime, are eligible. County residency is not required. To reserve a spot on the Walls of Honor, call 516-804-5802 for a registration form and requirements.
