Our Mission -


TO: Preserve the heritage of the men and women of each branch of our US military throughout the ages.


TO: Honor our nation and those who have sworn their lives to defend it.


TO: Bring overdue focus to all citizens of Bradford County who have served. 


TO: Name the names, cite the battles, revere those who made the ultimate 

       sacrifice, honor those wounded in action, preserve the legacy of those who were Prisoners of War and never        forget those who are still listed as Missing in Action.


TO: Present to the public a family oriented place of reverence using the finest materials, the best craftsmanship available and to blatantly cite the honor due 

       to all Veterans in this beautiful state of the art public park.


The core ideal of this project is the sacrifice of the individual common citizen who has worn the uniform of the US Military and who has diligently worked for the betterment of our country. This concept is the key to understanding the intricacies of the Park and its installations.


A Rotunda will utilize a five tier design and will house a unique bronze statue known as “The Quintessential Soldier.” This statue is how we see the ethereal embodiment of all who served and from all eras. The supporting legs of the rotunda will honor each of the five branches of the military with an emblem and the appropriate slogan.


Encircling the park we are placing individual monuments commemorating the five branches of the military. Here you will find history in the making citing slogans, hymns, dates and events.


There are many other features in this park, each has a story to tell and each will bring home our primary function; Honor, Prestige, Courage and Patriotism. Every thought and every innuendo shared will ultimately contribute to our prime directive; to preserve the Constitution of the United States of America and the legacy of a proud nation fought for by brave citizens protecting their loved ones safely at home.

Here on these "hallowed" stones we will list those heroes of yesterday who have paid the supreme sacrifice in defense of our nation. They have died - that we may live.
