Local Veterans Committee Selling Bricks For New Memorial

The Ohio County Veterans Memorial Committee is selling personalized bricks for the new veterans memorial at Rising Sun’s Riverfront Park.  Bricks are $40 each.  Currently, there has not been a purchase date deadline established.

It will be a “living” memorial useful in identifying and honoring veterans who have served in our nation’s armed forces.  Veteran bricks will be placed in front of the memorial stones.  Proof of service must accompany the order.

Personalized bricks may also be purchased for individuals and family members. Those will be placed along the lower walkway. 

If you are ordering multiple bricks and would like them placed together, the orders should be placed together.  The committee will do its very best to accommodate your request.

Please see the attached form below to place your order.  Note there are 13 characters available per each of three lines of inscription.  A punctuation mark or a special insignia (shown on the form) counts as one character.  All sales are final.

If you have any questions, please contact the county service officer at 812-438-1011 during the week (excluding Wednesdays) between 9:30 a.m. and 12 p.m.  You may also leave a message.

Checks should be made payable to the Ohio County Veterans Memorial Committee and mail to: Ohio County Veterans Memorial Committee, 413 Main St., Rm. 102, Rising Sun, IN 47040.
