The Sierra Vista Veterans Memorial Improvement Foundation (SVVMIF) is announcing their program to sell memorial pavers to the general public for installation at the Sierra Vista Veterans Memorial Park. The memorial pavers will accomplish two objectives:
1) Recognition of Veterans who have served in the Armed Forces of the United States
2) Raise funds for the construction of Veterans Trail as an improvement to the Veterans Memorial
The pavers may be dedicated to Veterans or Organizations having an affiliation with the Armed Forces of the United States.
All pavers/tiles will be colored a shade of red as provided by the manufacturer. The ½” thick tiles are for mounting on the wall at the flagpole patio, and are therefore in a position of honor due to the contribution of the honored individual.
The 4”x8” pavers/tiles will hold up to 4 lines of inscription. A line holds no more than 21 character positions that would include spaces. The suggested inscription information is as follows:
Line 1. Veterans Name: First MI Last
Line 2. Rank/Rating , Unit of Assignment
Line 3. Branch of the Armed Services (abbreviated), Dates of Service
Line 4. Personalized Dedication
The 8”x8” pavers/tiles will hold up to 8 lines of inscription. Each line holds no more than 21 character positions that would include spaces. The suggested inscription information is as shown above with additional lines for various purposes such as multiple individuals, multiple units, or other tasteful inscriptions of dedication.
Tiles with the same face dimensions as the bricks have the same limitations on inscriptions.
Logos can be added to any brick or tile, but carry an additional cost, and the number of characters allowed on each line is then reduced to 18 for the 4”x8” or the 8”x8” face.
Logos of Military Branches are made available for selection in the Brick Creator application on the Bricks R Us website. These logos are the authorized version to represent a Military branch of service, as Military Seals are protected under copyright restrictions. Other logos may be substituted for the service logos if they meet copyright constraints and are in keeping with Military service values.
