Engraved bricks are not only an excellent choice as a military gift for your World War II veteran or other military service personnel but they also can become a lasting memorial to your veteran or a loved one who is still serving on active military duty. The purchase of a memorial engraved brick serves, not only as a gift, but is a unique way to show your appreciation and gratitude for their service and can be used to honor any one of the five branches of the military: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines and Navy. What a great way to say thanks and make a commanding statement.
The Armed Forces History Museum has established a beautifully landscaped area known as the Memorial Walk and Garden, providing a unique opportunity to remember and memorialize special individuals. While the primary thrust of this memorial was initially designed for those veterans who served and active service men and women who are currently serving in our armed forces, the museum directors recognized that many individuals may also wish to remember other special loved ones in their lives as well. The purchased brick can become a permanent tribute on our Memorial Walk and Garden here at the museum, or can be sent to the recipient for placement in their own special walkway or garden space.
This commemorative area at the museum allows the giving back in thanks to those who have served during some of our major conflicts. These unique military bricks have been purchased for those who served in World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan. These military gifts also allow us to continue to build a metaphoric path educating future generations. Your purchase assists us in our continued efforts to educate our younger generations as to the history of our military and the sacrifices made by so many.
The bricks are available in two sizes. The 4” x 8” brick is $100. Wording on this brick is limited to 1-3 lines, with no more than 14 characters per line, including spaces and punctuation. The 8” x 8” brick is $175. Wording for this brick is limited to 1-6 lines, 14 characters per line – including spaces and punctuation. Price includes shipping to the Armed Forces History Museum.
When your order is received, if necessary to accommodate your gift-giving, you can request an 8 ½ x 11 certificate recognizing your purchase. Once the brick is received and placed in our Memorial Walk and Garden, you will receive a letter confirming its receipt, along with a photo of the brick.
If you have more than one recipient in mind, additional bricks can be ordered at a 10% discount. To receive this discount, all orders MUST be placed at the same time. If you would like to purchase a brick both in the Memorial Walk and Garden, and an additional brick to be sent to the recipient, a 10% discount is also available for the second brick when both are ordered at the same time. Additional shipping charges will be incurred for shipping if any brick is to be sent to you or the recipient. For more information regarding this cost, please contact Vicky@armedforcesmuseum.com.
The purchase of an engraved brick is not only a wonderful way to pay tribute to a World War II veteran or anyone who has served, or is currently serving in the military or even that someone special in your personal life, it assists the museum in its continued efforts to educate future generations of the sacrifices made by those in the past to preserve their freedom.
