Allen Veterans Memorial is dedicated to all veterans - past and present, honoring those who have passed on, those who have served and those who are still serving.
The United States Marine Corps, also referred to as the United States Marines, is a branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for conducting expeditionary and amphibious operations.
The Allen Veteran's Memorial honors past and present members of the Armed Forces of the United States in the form of bricks installed within the Memorial two times each year; just prior to Memorial Day and Veteran's Day. The bricks can be engraved with the veteran's name, branch of service/rank, and the era that he served (i.e. WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Cold War, etc.).
