Republic Veterans Memorial

Veterans Memorial Bricks on Sale Through November 30

In July of 2014, The City of Republic officially opened and dedicated the Republic Veterans Memorial to all those men and women who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces. The memorial is located within J.R. Martin Park at the entrance of The Amp (300 E. Hines, Republic, MO). The main fundraiser for the memorial was through the sale of honorary bricks which allowed citizens the opportunity to contribute to the Republic Veterans Memorial construction fund while honoring a veteran. To date, just over 375 bricks have been placed within the memorial along the walkways. 

Bricks are once again on sale and all bricks purchased by November 30 will be placed within the memorial in the spring of 2018. Citizens may purchase 4” x 8” bricks as an everlasting tribute to a past, present, or future veteran dear to you. The $100.00 donation will purchase a brick that can be engraved with three lines of text with twenty characters per line. If you would like to include the symbol from the veteran’s branch of service to the right of his or her information, the brick can be engraved with three lines of text with twelve characters per line. Every person who orders a brick also receives a mini replica of their brick as a keepsake. Additional funds raised by the sale of bricks will be used to further improve the memorial.

The official Republic Veterans Memorial Brick Order Form is available at the Republic Community Center or online at www.theamprepublic.com.
