In Veteran’s Park in Port Clinton 12,500 bricks make up the Veteran’s Memorial Parkway; nearly 1300 of those bricks are engraved to honor and/or remember those who have served our country. The brick walkway was dedicated on November 11, 2001 in Veteran’s Park, a park that was first built in the 1930s to honor those fighting and who have fought for the freedom of our country.
Walking under the beautifully crafted Veteran’s Park arch facing north towards the lake, the brick walkway lays before you. The bricks in the front of the walkway honor those who were part of the Bataan Death March. The last survivor, Joseph Hrupcho, is honored in the center. Still facing north, to the left of the howitzer are past commanders of The American Legion, to the right are past commanders of the VFW.
