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.
