MCVM VIRTUAL REALITY TOUR

This video takes you through a fly-through Virtual Reality Tour of the proposed design for the Martin County Veterans Memorial.

PHASE I OF THE MEMORIAL

A 70 foot flag pole supporting a 25′ x 15′ U.S. flag, a red granite sign and an 80′ x 8′ black granite wall with the names of Martin County Veterans have been installed as of 2019. Additional names will be added annually.

PHASE II OF THE MEMORIAL

Phase II will see the creation of a secluded natural setting with areas for quiet reflection by granite benches and life-size bronze statues of military soldiers representing all past and current war eras. A Bell Cobra-Fixed Wing Attack Helicopter, AH-1-66-F-15327, has also been acquired by the committee and will be put on permanent display at the memorial site.

Installed the new granite bench at the memorial today. It is right in front of the KIA, MIA, POW section. This is where our first four statues will be installed. I was in charge of the memorial site for the dedication and would like to thank the following people who made my job easier. Chris Olson of Olson Rental, Bob Lenort of Bob’s Biffies, Culligan Water, all my on site volunteers, Doug Peterson for the stage, Richard Koons and his sons, JD Speltz, and Chuck and Barry Maday. Without these businesses and people I would never had been able to do my job. There is a lot more to come with the Memorial and we will keep you appraised of our progress. ... See MoreSee Less

I was contacted today by our VSO Officer Doug Landstiener today. He asked that I contact all of our followers as to getting names on the wall. According to Doug the best and easiest way to get your veterans name on the wall is to call his office first for verification and he has access to most DD214 (discharge papers) for veterans in our county. This process helps us get your veterans name spelled correctly and your questions can be answered immediately. The VSO can be reached at (507) 238-3220. Doug is working hard to getting this done in a timely fashion and his efforts are greatly appreciated. ... See MoreSee Less
