To the Editor:

The Bluffton Veteran’s Memorial was created in partnership with the Town of Bluffton and Bluffton American Legion Auxiliary. The purpose of the Memorial was to create a place within the Town that recognized the service and sacrifices of all military veterans from all wars and conflicts.

The hope was that it would become a place of solace and remembrance, a special park to honor and respect loved ones.

The placing of personalized bricks at the site as one way to support the construction of the Memorial has become a vital procedure for the Auxiliary to pay forward on its obligation to the Town and to generally enhance the overall presentation of the park.

The cost of each individual brick is $100 for three lines of messaging, containing 14 characters for each line (spaces count). Payment or requests for an application should be mailed to Veterans’ Memorial, PO Box 1933, Bluffton SC 29910.

As of this writing, more than 400 bricks have been placed at the Memorial, with room for at least 400 more.

Please consider helping the Auxiliary continue to support this Memorial by purchasing a brick to honor or remember a loved one.
