One of the many historic accomplishments of the American Legion in the past 100 years is the establishment of veterans monuments. Locally, Legion Post 148 is creating an impressive Memorial Park honoring all Murray County veterans in a park-like setting on Broadway Ave. in Sulphur at W.11th St.

Already installed at the site is a 100-foot flagpole with an impressively large American Flag that can be seen for miles around.The granite monument shown here was installed and dedicated on the Fourth of July weekend in 2016.

The recent additions are the dozens of commemorative memorial “paving bricks” adorned with veterans’ names and service information that fill a walkway north and south of the monument.
