CCVMP Goals and Objectives

Our main priority is to provide the veterans of Carroll County an appropriate memorial. We want to have a prestigious place to assemble for Memorial and Veterans Day Programs, as well as a place for individuals and families to have a quiet place to remember their loved ones.

To date we have completed 19 Walls of Honor containing 912 individual plaques showing name, rank, and service record. We are currently working on wall number 20.

The Killed In Action Walls are up to date and contain all the Carroll County Veterans of all the U. S. wars beginning with the American Revolution.

All Branches of the U. S. Military are represented on the Emblem Wall, which is complete.

The Contributor Wall of Honor has been constructed and is being updated as new contributors qualify. It contains the names of those who gave $500 or more toward building the park. Without this group of patriotic citizens, we would not have a park.

Walkways, a flagpole, lamp posts, benches, irrigation system, and some landscaping have been put in place but more is needed. Our goal is to make this the prettiest and most impressive place in Carroll County because that is what our Veterans and Troops deserve.

Eventually we want to have funds available to care for the park and continue to add names as long as there are wars in which Americans serve their country, or until the Lord comes again!
