When construction is complete, the Montgomery Veterans Memorial will list the names of all Montgomery residents who have served or are serving in the armed forces or merchant marine during times of war. Additional information about these veterans, as well as information about the times and circumstances under which they served, will be added to the Montgomery Veterans Memorial website as it is developed.
As future generations of Montgomery residents enter the armed forces or merchant marine during times of war, their names will be added to the Memorial, and additional biographical data may be added to the website. We anticipate the addition of names to the memorial will occur periodically, accompanied with an appropriate patriotic ceremony or observance.
Continuing research in the coming years is likely to produce the names of additional Montgomery residents who have served our nation during times of war prior to the beginning of the third millennium. As these names are discovered, they will be added to the Memorial.
Every attempt will be made to identify any and all incoming residents who have already served our nation in times of war. The names of these veterans, along with additional biographical and/or anecdotal information, will be maintained on the Montgomery Veterans Memorial website so that these veterans can receive appropriate recognition from the community.
Once a veteran has been recognized by name on either the Montgomery Veterans Memorial or the Montgomery Veterans Memorial website, his or her name will remain in perpetuity.
