Thanks to everyone to contributed or participated in our annual Veterans Day Ceremony on Saturday, November 11th at 11:00am. Photos from the event will be posted soon. Twenty-eight additional bricks were dedicated, bringing the total number of commemorative bricks at the memorial to 1,498. We are hoping to surpass the milestone of 1,500 bricks in 2018.
The Northern Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce and the Board for the Linthicum Veterans Memorial held a Moment of Silence with veterans and the community on September 11th at 10 a.m. The event included a brief service and bell ringing to commemorate the events that happened on September 11th, 2001. Please keep all those who were impacted by those events in your thoughts and prayers. We will never forget.
The Linthicum Veterans Memorial Board recently completed an extensive project to map all of the commemorative bricks. This will make it easier for guests of the memorial to locate the name of a friend or family member who served. Special thanks goes out to Rusty Bixler for developing and managing the database of bricks and the locator map. If you are looking for a specific brick, download the file below. Each commemorative brick is listed in alphabetical order along with the Section, Row, and Brick Number. Take this information with you to the memorial, where you'll find a map inside our display case. Locate the desired section on the map. Row numbers start from the bottom of each section. Count up the number of rows and over (from left to right) for the specific brick location.
Maryland citizens like to know whenever the Governor has declared that flags—both U.S. and State, are to be flown at half-staff. The Linthicum Veterans Memorial proudly flies its flags following the official guidance provided by the Maryland Secretary of State flag alert system. For additional information on general flag protocol, Public Law 110-41, or to sign yourself up for flag status alerts, visit the Secretary of State website at http://sos.maryland.gov/Pages/Services/Flag-Status.aspx
