Welcome to the Veteran's Memorial at Fountain Park
Welcome to our web site. We are honoring all the Veterans in Lake-Sumter-Marion Counties and The Villages. Situated in Fountain Lake Park directly across from City Hall in downtown Leesburg, this granite memorial is 60 feet in diameter and 7 feet high and covers 2800 square feet. This is one of the largest Veteran memorials in the Southeast. New names will be added to the Memorial twice a year. In addition there will be 10,500 bricks on the floor of the Memorial to honor any person you would like to honor. As of March 7, 2015 we are now honoring 8786 veterans on the memorial wall.
All veterans who have served at least 90 days in the armed forces and received an Honorable, Medical or in some cases a General discharge can be on the wall. There is an engraving charge of $35.00 per name. You must be a resident of Lake-Sumter-Marion Counties or you were a resident at the time you served in the military. Mail or bring a copy of your DD214 and a check for $35.00 to the address listed below:
