The Old Monroe American Legion Post No. 420 is building a Veterans Memorial Wall next to their Legion Hall. The wall will be 22 ft. long with the present memorial in the middle and front of the wall. Legion members will be selling bricks with the following information on them…name of veteran, branch of service emblem, rank/unit and what conflict they served in. The bricks are for any service member alive or deceased that has been or is in the military. The wall will be a tribute to all veterans for what they have done for the United States.
For more information, call Ron Heimann at 636-366-9518 or Commander Butch Henke at 636-665-5335 or 314-299-3723. The Legion’s initial goal is to sell 200 bricks prior to Memorial Day weekend. Discussions are being held with many Legion, VFW, and auxiliaries and other organizations and individuals.
The response has been great and it is not too late if a veteran or family wishes to purchase a brick during this initial effort.
