The Veterans Memorial, in a meaningful location and tranquil setting, is a tribute to the fallen as well as a heartfelt thank you to all who have served.
It will salute the sacrifices and achievements made by those being honored and remind future generations of the contributions of military service.
Pioneer Cemetery is the resting place of hundreds of veterans dating back to the Civil War. Every Memorial Day the local veteran community honors each resting veteran with a US Flag placed by their headstone. It is a most moving event.
The addition of a Veterans Memorial will create a year round location where the public can pay their respects and homage to the heroes who have served. It will be a place to reflect and remember the service and sacrifices that have been made, and continue to be made to protect our freedom.
Part of the project includes this web site (www.PleasantonVeteransMemorial.com) that will highlight the history of Pleasanton veterans.
