VVA Memorial Garden Walk at the VA Medical Center

The walkway is paved by inscribed bricks donated by supporters, and contains  names of their loved ones and family members.  Donate a brick and you’ll feel closer to the memories and legacies you’ve created.  There is no better way to approach the tranquility of the Memorial Garden. Preserve your most precious memories permanently, donate a memorial brick today. Celebrate the life of someone dear to you by

donating a brick to remember a friend, favorite relative, or someone with whom you’ve shared precious memories.  Honor the memory of a loved one – parents, children, grandchildren, your spouse, or friends.  Celebrate a special occasion – birthday, marriage, or anniversary.  Acknowledge special achievements – retirement, special awards.

Give the gift of a brick. V V A will be happy to send your gift recipient a letter acknowledging your

gift. Just complete the acknowledgment section of the order form link  below.

Your 6” x 9” brick will be inscribed with your own personal message and placed on the Garden Walkway

and costs $100. The inscription is limited to four (4) lines of 14 characters per line, including spaces and punctuation marks. 

The Memorial Garden Walkway leads you past the side of the little white chapel and into the center of the Memorial Garden.  The center of the Memorial Garden is a brick paved circular area surrounded by five stone benches, each representing a branch of the service.  A large monument memorializes current local Vietnam Veterans who have passed on.  An American flag is proudly flown in the center of this area.

The circular area is bordered by moss rocks and the lush Memorial Garden beyond.
