Watauga County Veterans' Memorial
The members of the High Country MOAA Chapter realized that our County did not previously have a Memorial to recognize and pay tribute to our Veterans. After nearly 3 years of effort we were finally able to reveal our new Veterans' Memorial in downtown Boone, NC on July 4th. We will shortly have pictures to show the memorial, the unveiling and the site of the memorial. Once again, we thank the generosity of the Town of Boone Mayor and Town Council for their support and partnership in providing a site adjacent to Town Hall with the highest possible visibility to our citizens, students and visitors.
The focal point of the Veterans' Memorial is a sculpture "Time and Honor" by Banner Elk native Suzie Hallier. The structure is in the shape of an ellipse with the words "Duty. Honor. Country." engraved on the main portion. The ellipse ends with five directional pillars for the five different service branches: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Three kneel walls display plaques reflecting our major wars and conflicts as well as recognizing our veterans and our donors.
We still need and continue to ask for your generous support in providing funds to see this project through.
