- August 21, 2021 the Hamilton County Veterans would like to Honor our Vietnam Brothers and Sisters who so bravely fought for our Freedoms and never made it home, and we want to Welcome Home those of us who made it back by re-dedicating this Memorial in your Honor. So come on all you old farts, put your thinking caps on and come up with some ideas on what we should do to rededicate the Vietnam War Memorial.
- Let me know your ideas ASAP so we can start planning. Send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Help us Honor all our Brothers and Sisters who so proudly fought and Gave their All for our Freedoms during the Vietnam War!!
Crownland Cemetery of Noblesville - We are reconditioning and adding to the Hamilton County Veterans Memorial and NEED YOUR HELP!! We are placing 2 new Memorial Stones, one on each side of the present Memorial to add the names of our Fallen Heroes from WWI and the Persian Gulf War. The current Memorial was dedicated in 1953 with the names of the Fallen from Hamilton County during WW2. Since then, names of our fallen Heroes from Korea & Vietnam were also added. As the years have passed, the Memorial has started to lean showing gaps in the present stones which is making it unstable and unsafe. It is also needing a cleaning which we will be doing as well. We have been meeting with the Crownland Cemetery Board as well as the Hamilton County Historical Commission for the past several years but still nothing has been done. We really need the updates we have hoped for before it is too late.
Over the years the HCV has raised $3,100.00 but still need an additional $7,000.00 as well as professional help from those who are knowledgeable in refurbing/rebuilding/relocating a Monument like this. We do have some professional volunteers but could always use more to help defray some costs. If you can help, please send your donation to HCV P.O. Box 503 Noblesville, In. 46061 C/O Lynn Epperson HCVSO. Tax ID# will be furnished upon receipt of funds. If you or your business would like to sponsor this project or help in the refurbishment please contact Ron Wilson at email@example.com

If you know of any WWII Veterans or Veterans from the Korean or Vietnam Wars who are interested in making the Indy Honor Flight, please get them to fill out the Veteran Form and mail it to Indy Honor Flight Inc. - address is on the bottom of page 2 of the form or any questions, call them 317/559-1600. Also, if you or anyone you know would like to be a volunteer guardian to help us transport our Heroes, please fill out the Guardian Form and send it in - Guardians must pay for their own air fare.
