Bricks & Banners
Honoring Military Service
Our community has a long-standing tradition of honoring those who serve. The Battle Ground Veterans Memorial, located in Kiwanis Park, was fully funded and constructed by community donations.
The Bricks & Banners program provides two distinct opportunities for you to honor and recognize those who serve.
Personalized, commemorative bricks may be purchased for placement at the Battle Ground Veterans Memorial to honor any U.S. veteran. Each brick displays the veteran's name, branch of service, and dates of service. It is a meaningful and lasting way to honor the military service of a loved one or friend.
Bricks are engraved and installed on an annual basis in time for Memorial Day. Orders must be received by March 1st to meet that year’s installation.
To Purchase a Brick
The cost of a personalized brick is $250. Place your order online through the Parks Foundation of Clark County, or you may use the brick order form and mail it to the Parks Foundation as noted on the form.
Proceeds from brick sales support the ongoing maintenance of the Battle Ground Veterans Memorial. Thank you.
Main Street Military Banners
The Military Banner program was initiated by City Council as a way to honor and recognize those who have served, currently serve, and are committed to serve in the U.S. Armed Forces. Banners featuring individual honorees will be displayed along Battle Ground's Main Street.
Honoree Qualifications & Requirements
- Incoming Military
- Provide proof of commitment: Form-4 or a letter from ROTC indicating your commitment and status (delayed entry, delayed training, ROTC)

Full color, double-sided 30" x 84" custom banners include an image of the honoree, their name, military branch, rank (or status), and dates of service (or date of entry into service).
Photos submitted for veteran and active-duty status honorees are required to be an official military portrait. Images of incoming-military honorees should be an image of the honoree void of other people or objects, and professional in nature.
Banners are installed along Battle Ground's Main Street on light poles during the month of May (Military Appreciation Month) through the 3rd week of June the initial year of purchase. At the conclusion of the display period, banners are returned to the purchaser. (Please note that banners not claimed by June 30 will be disposed of.)
