We salute you, Veterans.
11 Hoover Police Officers have served in combat zones. Last week, these 11 veterans were recognized in a ceremony by the Alabama Veterans Memorial Foundation.
The Alabama Veterans Memorial Foundation believes that every veteran deserves a tangible way of being publicly recognized for his or her service. Their American Flag Plaza is dedicated to all veterans who have served or all men and women who are currently serving from any State, giving them a special place of remembrance.
Encircling the flag pole are very special 4 inch by 8 inch brick pavers, called StepStones. These StepStones have been engraved with a veteran’s name, rank, and branch of service. The honored veteran can be from any service time, any state and any branch; they may be deceased or living; or, currently serving. Also, a military unit or a military-affiliated organization may be honored with a StepStone.
