MONUMENT project

It's simply amazing what the work crew has accomplished since the start of this project in 2018. Beautiful doesn't even begin to describe the awe you feel when walking down the walkway and seeing the first set of engraved bricks laid down, then reading the etched stone, but of course that is just my opinion, you will have to come down and see it for yourself.

If you would like to order a brick you can pick up a order form at our legion or order one on the hero's walkway section on this page.





Hosted by Fundraising Brick

For additional information regarding our engraved brick campaign

please contact Brian Brown at

bobbybrown7172@gmail.com or call (607)427-7883.

Money raised from the brick sales will help fund improvements and upkeep to our monument.

LEGION Act signed into law

The American Legion’s eligibility criteria immediately changes from seven war eras to two: April 6, 1917, to Nov. 11, 1918, and Dec. 7, 1941 to a time later determined by the federal government. No other restrictions to American Legion membership are changed.

Under the new law, any honorably discharged veteran who has served since Dec. 7, 1941, may join the American Legion, meaning military veterans who served in what were previously considered periods of peacetime between wars are now eligible for membership.

History was made at the American Legion Auxiliary’s 99th National Convention in Indianapolis!

—8/30/19—INDIANAPOLIS – The American Legion has voted to extend membership in the American Legion Auxiliary to male spouses of U.S. veterans and servicemembers. During The American Legion National Convention in Indianapolis in August, delegates of The American Legion voted to replace the word “wife” with “spouse” in their constitution and bylaws, opening up membership in the American Legion Auxiliary.
