Ahead of the upcoming Veterans Day holiday, the City of New Braunfels is making commemorative bricks available as a lasting tribute that will forever recognize a veteran’s service to our country. Those bricks are now available for purchase and placement at the newly-opened New Braunfels Veteran’s Memorial, located in front of the New Braunfels Police Department Headquarters at 3030 West San Antonio St.
Residents can honor a veteran with an inscribed brick that will be permanently installed at the Memorial. Those bricks will feature the service member’s name and military service information. To be installed before the City’s Veterans Day ceremony, brick orders must be received before October 1st, 2022. For more information on reserving a brick, visit www.newbraunfels.gov/bricks.
The New Braunfels Veteran’s Memorial was created to recognize the service that members of our community have given to our country. Each branch of the military is represented on the exterior walls including Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy, and Space Force. The interior walls of the memorial honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country and includes special recognition for Gold Star Families. Members of the public can recommend veterans for inclusion on the memorial wall. To be eligible for consideration, the veteran being nominated must be considered killed in action (KIA) or missing in action (MIA), and have been considered a legal resident of Comal or Guadalupe County. To nominate an eligible veteran, contact the New Braunfels Parks & Recreation Department at 830-221-4350.
Again, to purchase a commemorative brick that will be installed prior to the 2022 Veterans Day ceremony, orders must be received before October 1st, 2022. To order, visit www.newbraunfels.gov/bricks.
