This Year’s Event Recipient Is The Middle East Conflicts Memorial Fund.
Located near other military memorials located at Hazel and Williams, the Middle East Conflicts Memorial will honor all Vermilion County veterans who served during Desert Shield, Desert Storm, Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom and the Afghanistan conflict. Unlike many memorials erected to remember the fallen, the Middle East Conflicts Memorial is an opportunity to remember those who served within the five branches of the United States Military. The Middle East Conflicts Memorial will commemorate soldiers’ services to their country and serve as a place for soldiers/veterans to share experiences with friends and family. This commemoration will be a source of pride for our community and demonstrate the commitment and support to the soldiers who have served.
