The center of the back wall is etched with historical facts about the wars our soldiers served in.
The following is an excerpt, see article here: Dedication
Memorial wall hails Ohio vets of Vietnam War
by Kathy Antoniotti Beacon Journal staff writer Published May 18, 2009
“125-foot black granite wall etched with the names of 3,094 Ohio men and one woman who died while serving in the Vietnam conflict.”
“Ohio Gold Star Mothers. The 6-foot-tall granite statue is dedicated to all mothers who have lost children to war. The statue stands on a 3-foot pedestal and weighs 1,600 pounds.”
“The wall and all the memorials at the park were created by Ken Noon of Summit Memorials on West Wilbeth Road in Akron”
“Donations also are being sought to pave the walkways, which radiate from the wall, with memorial bricks and to add benches around the wall.”
