A very sharp Veterans Memorial. It has the names of all Moore Co. Veterans displayed, on granite tablets ( all 5 services ). Along with two special marble tablets with the names of veterans who were killed in combat. I was very impressed, with the place, and noticed how very clean, and manicured the memorial was. Very glad to see this unique system of combining all veterans names, together with no specific mentions of which branch, conflict etc. This is a Veterans Memorial, no matter what service they were in. Top Notch all the way. My Congrats to those who made it happen.
