Veterans Monument recognition
Friday, Feb. 28, is this year’s deadline to add a veteran’s name to the New Gloucester Veterans Monument or to purchase an engraved brick for $50.
To have a name engraved on the monument, an individual must be a veteran or currently active in the military, reserves or National Guard and have resided in New Gloucester at some point in their lives. Proof of military status is required, such as a copy of discharge papers (DD-214).
Forms for engraving names on a monument or engraving on a 4-inch x 8-inch brick are available by clicking on the New Gloucester Veterans Monument menu at newgloucester.com, picking up print versions at Town Hall or by emailing a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
