These beautiful polished black granite benches surround The Ohio Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Wall and will eventually line the walk way through-out the park. They are engraved with many designs from companies, families or groups who wish to honor our troops and veterans. The design of the benches are varied. Some benches have been dedicated to individuals such as Mike Paonessa and Robert L. Gilbert II, while others have been dedicated to a group of veterans from a certain city or town, such as Cuyahoga Falls and Wadsworth. The Cuyahoga Falls and Wadsworth bench was paid for with donations from friends and family members of those killed during the Vietnam War from their respective cities. Still other benches have been donated by cities, churches, organizations, businesses and alumni. The benches are sandblasted with your own design, or we can assist you in the design. They can even contain photographs of your hero. The engraved area of the bench is 48″ wide X 14″ tall. If your organization is looking for a good fundraiser to take part in, these benches are for an excellent cause. The City Of Norton donated a bench to The Ohio Veterans’ Memorial Park that reads… “FREEDOM IS NOT FREE…Sacrifices they made and deeds they performed shall be written in history, and shall remain alive in our memories for generations to come. We express sincerely our pride and gratitude for the tasks they fulfilled.” The Ohio Veterans’ Memorial Park wants to help insure that the names and deeds of these brave men and women indeed remain alive in our memories.
