Those looking to memorialize military veterans have the
opportunity to do so by purchasing an engraved brick at the Puyallup Veteran’s
Memorial in Pioneer Park.
The memorial is a monument to honor veterans, both past and
present, who have died in service to their country and to those who serve or
have served. The statue was dedicated on
Memorial Day in 2002.
The interactive memorial depicts a soldier bending down to
help a comrade. The soldier’s hand is
extended, reaching out to the living, symbolizing the need to remember all
those who have fought for freedom.
A bronze plaque is located at the memorial listing names of
those from Puyallup who have lost their lives in war. A small courtyard surrounds the statue, where
bricks suitable for engraving have been placed.
Orders for memorial bricks are now being accepted through Friday, March
31, 2017. Bricks may be ordered via the
city website at www.cityofpuyallup.org,
by contacting the City Clerk’s Office at 253-841-5480 or visiting the City
Clerk’s Office at Puyallup City Hall, 333 So. Meridian.
