Mission Statement

The goal of the LMT Veterans Committee is to create a timeless monument to honor veterans while making Veterans Square an attractive park where residents can gather with family, friends, and neighbors for both public and informal events. We hope to create an opportunity to educate the children of our community about the sacrifices made by our servicemen and women via an interactive format.

VETERANS SQUARE MONUMENT

The LMT veterans committee is a volunteer group comprised of residents and veterans whose mission is to create a timeless monument to honor veterans of the past, present and future within a peaceful park setting where residents can gather with family, friends, and neighbors for public events, or to enjoy the park and monument on their own. Veterans Square is located on the corner of Edgewood and Heacock Roads. Our hope is to create a destination for residents to come reflect and relax, while also educating the children of our community about the sacrifices of our servicemen and women. We have a professional design team comprised of two architects, a landscape architect, and a sculptor who are donating their talents to design the monument. We are beginning an Engraving Campaign where residents and businesses will have the opportunity to purchase a brick or granite paver and be a part of the monument.
