Welcome to The Ohio Veterans' Memorial Park.

We are dedicated to honoring all veterans from all wars, remembering their sacrifices for our freedom and safety, and celebrating their lives.

will soon have no Heroes to honor."



 

THE OHIO VETERANS' MEMORIAL PARK

Ohio Veterans' Memorial ParkIn May of 2009 the 125 foot long polished black granite wall with the names of the 3,095 Ohioans lost during the Vietnam War was dedicated in Clinton, Ohio. The wall is the flag ship of this memorial. Since the dedication several other monuments have been added with several additional  monuments planned. We have also added the names of those Ohioans lost during the War On Terrorism, beginning with the Beirut Bombing to the east side of the wall, with future plans to ad the names of those that "Gave All' during the Korean War in 2015.

For more information about the park and its monuments click on the link below.

THE MEMORIALS

There are several memorials at the park that allow you to honor your Hero, from the black granite benches that are placed throughout the park to the memorial pavers that line the park's walkway.

We have recently added the Purple Heart memorial pavers and The Family Of Heroes Pavilion tiles.

The memorials are not only for those who made the ultimate sacrifice. They are offered for anyone who has taken the oath to defend the principles that our great nation was founded on, during both war and peacetime.

OUR HEROES

"But fame is theirs - and future days On pillar'd brass shall tell their praise; Shall tell - when cold neglect is dead - "These for their country fought and bled."
~Philip Freneau~
