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.

We have a key note speaker for the Memorial dedication on May 25 th. Our speaker will be William Albracht. Captain Albracht was the youngest Green Beret Captain in Vietnam. In October of 1969 he took command of a fire base in Quand Doc Province, Firebase Kate. He was in command of 27 American Soldier’s and 156 Montagnard militiamen. After 5 days of holding off 3 North Vietnam regiments they were running out of water and ammunition. In a daring night maneuver, Captain Albracht led 150 men thru enemy lines and safety. It is an amazing story and is told in the book “Abandoned in Hell”.Captain Albracht received three Silver Stars, three Purple Hearts and five bronze stars for his actions in Vietnam. After Vietnam he joined the secret service where he protected 6 Presidents and many foreign dignitaries.Save the date. May 25th. Dedication will be from approximately 10:00 AM to 1 PM.
