Veteran's Day Open House
Veterans and Scouts gather for a photo during the Veteran's Day Open House at the VTOT Tribute to mark the 100th anniversary of the day the guns fell silent on the Western Front in World-War I.
The first snow of the year blankets the Tribute.
The fall brick orders have been installed!
Take a minute to stop by and see the newly installed bricks!
Tribute Receives $10,000 from Venture Global Engineering Foundation
A huge thank you to the VGE Foundation, which has awarded the Veterans Tribute with a grant of $10,000.
Braving Rain - the Tribute is dedicated!
Despite the rain, over 500 people donned rain gear in order to take part in the patriotic festivities, highlighted by an Ohio National Guard F16 flyover and a stirring rendition of our national anthem. Click on the image above to see the slide show!
Although the dedication is still a week away, we had one of our first visitors. She apparently really liked the landscaping!
Landscaping is in
With the landscaping and irrigation in place, only the final asphalt layer and a few minor details remain to be finished before the end of the month dedication.
Let the Bricklaying Begin!
The paver bricks are being placed! Did you honor your favorite veteran with an engraved brick? If not, get your order in now for the next installation wave!
First Glass Panel in Place!
The first of the Service glass panels is placed into the stainless steel frame.
Granite is in, and tribute frames are being installed.
Granite moves into Place
The beautiful weather has allowed excellent progress, with the crane on site yesterday and today, moving the several-ton blocks of granite into place. Following placement, the granite will be grouted and the frames for the glass panels will be put into place.
Wow, the beautiful granite work has arrived on site. This spectacular stone will stand in honor to our armed forces. Progressing quickly now!
Arial View - Curbs are in!
The concrete curbs are in, forming up the site, and really making the outlines of the project visible!
Foundations Take Shape!
The foundation for the services panels has been poured and the layout of the tribute is beginning to take shape. As the weather improves this spring, construction will move ahead. We Still Need Your Help! Any and all contributions are appreciated, we are still short of our fundraising goal. Recognize a veterans service with a tribute brick, or make a donation. With your help we can drive to completion, and launch with our dedication in July!
VTOT Site Work Begins
The site preparation work has begun. Thanks to all of the sponsors and donors who have made this possible!
