The purpose of the memorial is to honor all veterans of all branches of the United States military who served abroad or at home. Their service to this country will forever be memorialized in the bricks that are engraved with names, rank, service branch or just a loving memory as a symbol of honor to them and their families.

The Gahanna Veterans Memorial project began in 1997. It grew from a dream of several local veterans. For a complete story on the life of the memorial please follow the “Memorial Facts” link.
