The Round Rock Veterans Monument Committee will host a Memorial Day service at the Round Rock Veterans Monument on Memorial Day, May 30 at 11am and the entire community is invited to attend.
The Round Rock Veterans Monument was built by the City of Round as a place of honor and remembrances for all that are serving or have served to protect and defend our American heritage. It is where veterans can show their pride for having served; families and friends can honor their veterans for their service; and citizens and businesses can support the recognition of those with a historical attachment to Round Rock.
The Round Rock Veterans Monument features six columns with plaques that honor the different service branches: Army, Marine Corp, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marines. A Memorial Wall honoring veterans who have been killed in action, held as a prisoner of war, or declared missing in action is part of the Monument.
The Round Rock Veterans Monument Committee was formed to purchase plaques for veterans who are a part of Round Rock’s history but have no family to honor them. The Round Rock Veterans Monument Committee is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All funds will be used for the purchase of plaques. To complete the work of identifying veterans from Round Rock financial support is needed from citizens and businesses.
