To support the installation and maintenance of the project,
the Committee is selling sponsorship bricks and challenge coins.

The sponsorship bricks will line the center walkway through the newly installed
monuments and serve as a place of support and reflection for Saugus veterans,
their families and supporters.  The cost of the bricks ranges from $100 - $500

A challenge coin is a small medallion primarily used in the military. 
It bears the organization’s emblem and is carried by members. 
Historically they were given to prove membership and to enhance morale. 
Now they are mostly collected by service members and veterans,
and they are exchanged for special recognition or visits to organizations.

Mission

The Town of Saugus and the Saugus Veteran Wall Committee is currently
upgrading the Saugus Veteran Wall Park to include black granite monuments
highlighting the service of Saugus veterans during the following war eras:
American Civil War, Spanish American War, World War I, World War II,
Korean War, Vietnam, Persian Gulf and Cold War, Global War on Terror.

The first installation occurred on November 11, 2014 thanks to a private
donation from the XXX family.  A proud Korean war veteran, XXX inspired
the Veteran Wall Committee to further dedicate stones and seek funding
to embrace all periods of service in one setting to be visited annually
by the Veterans and Memorial Day Parades.

Since that time, local businesses and organizations have volunteered
their time and money to make the Veterans Park vision a reality.

The remaining stones are slated for installation and dedication on
Veterans Day 2015 in a special ceremony to coincide with the holiday.

For more information on this project, please contact
