Veteran's Memorial drawingSoon, visitors to Augusta will be able to view a newly completed Vietnam memorial, on Broad Street. The monument will be constructed from “five, eight-foot granite panels.” The back panels will represent the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard.

On the front, 2 panels will contain the names of 160 Georgia and 54 South Carolina Vietnam casualties; 2 panels will depict the ‘Three Soldiers’ statue in Washington D.C., and the center panel will contain a map of the Vietnam War Theatre of Operations. Names of the fallen are currently being engraved by our beloved Star Granite.

 

    A dedication ceremony is scheduled for March 29, 2019.

Columnist Don Rhodes credited Star Granite this week in an article by the Augusta Chronicle. Read more and see all the drawings…
