Each pentagon corner has 4 panels and will contain 600 names. 6 panels were used to portray the history of our wars and conflicts and 2 panels were used to pay tribute the fallen, 5 panels show the history of the branches of service. This first Pentagon Shape will contain 3000 names when completed.
The Bronze Fallen Soldier Statue in the middle is a reminder of their fallen comrades and of sacrifice that has been made for us.
The Veterans Memorial Committee has designed the memorial park and collected names of veterans to be honored for engraving. This Memorial honors those who died in service to their country and pays tribute to all Jackson Countians who have served their country.
