LAMB COUNTY VETERANS' MEMORIAL

vets

The Lamb County Memorial was dedicated November 11, 2007. The memorial monoliths include names of members of the military, whether in wartime or peacetime, who have lived in Lamb County. The majority of the work on the memorial was done by donated labor.

The Lamb County Veterans' Memorial was dedicated in a special ceremony, Sunday afternoon, November 11, 2007, when a flyover was conducted by airmen from Dye Air Force Base near Abilene. The monoliths include the names of over 4,100 veterans, along with pavers, benches, lighting, flag poles and the county's town markers out in front along the sidewalk. An engraver comes to Littlefield periodically to engrave new names on the monoliths. More than 200 names have been added since the monoliths were erected. Memorial celebrations take place at the site on July 4, Memorial Day and the Sunday prior to Veteran's Day.

Contributions are still being accepted toward the cost of upkeep for the memorial and donations are tax deductible. Contributions may be sent to Charlie Meier, Treasurer, PO Box 506, Littlefield, Texas 79339.
