It's Veterans Day every day in Beaumont, where a memorial that never closes gives residents a chance to honor and remember those who served their country in the armed forces.
The memorial, in a rose garden setting, honors deceased military personnel who lived in Beaumont or Cherry Valley while on active duty or who died later in those communities after their military service ended. It consists of granite slabs where hundreds of names of local veterans are listed, including their rank and military branch.
Inscribing a Name
***Update: The Beaumont Veterans Memorial has reached capacity with its current design. The application process has been place on hold until such time that an expansion of the Memorial allows for the engraving of additional names***
The Beaumont Veterans Memorial was dedicated during a ceremony on Veterans Day in 2002 by the Beaumont Veterans of Foreign War Post 233.
