Vinton/Roanoke County Veterans Monument – coming soon!

vinton-war-memorialArea veterans, Vinton town officials and citizens – dedicated to recognizing veterans past & present – wish to honor those who have made and continue to make personal sacrifices for our freedom.  Thus was born the idea of an outdoor, freestanding Veterans monument, constructed to pay homage to all veterans from Vinton and Roanoke County. Because of their bravery, we are “the land of the free and home of the brave.”

To meet the needs of this construction project, the Vinton Vision Committee is reaching out to the community, businesses, and individuals to help provide financial support for the building of the Veterans Monument.

Ways to Give –


dsc01049The Vinton/Roanoke County Veterans Monument Committee would like to extend to the public an opportunity to be part of an exciting historical endeavor.  This opportunity is to honor veterans that gave the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives and also to honor “those who serve and those who have served” our country from World War II to the present.

The chosen design proposal is called “High Ground.” A star-shaped walkway will surround and lead to the main part of the monument structure. This walk are will have a brick cobblestone effect to help highlight the elegence of the memorial itself.

The brick style pavers are available for individual purchase in honor of a deceased veteran, someone who serves or has served, or a person one would like to recognize for any reason. 

Thank you for considering a donation to the Vinton/Roanoke County Veterans Monument. Please feel free to contact Candye Ann Peters, Assistant Campaign Director, at 540.525.8449 or Mary Beth Layman, Town of Vinton, at 540.983.0613
