polished black granite benches surround The Ohio Vietnam
Veterans' Memorial Wall and will eventually line the
walk way through-out the park. They are engraved with
many designs from companies, families or groups who wish
to honor our troops and veterans.
The design of the
benches are varied. Some benches have been dedicated to
individuals such as Mike Paonessa and Robert L. Gilbert
II, while others have been dedicated to a group of
veterans from a certain city or town, such as Cuyahoga
Falls and Wadsworth. The Cuyahoga Falls and Wadsworth
bench was paid for with donations from friends and
family members of those killed during the Vietnam War
from their respective cities. Still other benches have
been donated by cities, churches, organizations,
businesses and alumni.
The benches are
sandblasted with your own design, or we can assist you
in the design. They can even contain photographs of your
hero. The engravable area of the bench is 48" wide X 14"
If your organization is
looking for a good fundraiser to take part in, these
benches are for an excellent cause.
