HONORING VETERANS PAST, PRESENT . . .
AND PAYING FORWARD TO THE FUTURE
When the legendary “shot heard ‘round the world” echoed from the greens of Concord and Lexington to Lancaster County in 1775, nearly 8,000 local patriots ultimately responded to the call to arms.
Things haven’t changed much over the past nearly two and a half centuries.
Men and women of Lancaster County have always responded to America’s call whenever liberty was threatened domestically or around the globe.
The Veterans Honor Park of Lancaster County is a tribute to every generation of warriors in every branch of the United States military – Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard.
Being built in Warwick Township in co-operation with local government, it recognizes the selfless dedication of every Lancaster County man and woman who ever wore the uniform, and swore to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Most importantly, it reminds everyone – especially young people – of the sacrifices others have made for their freedom.
