Pilot Light: Deadline Sept. 15 on Veterans Memorial
Sept. 15 is the cutoff date to add names to the Moore County Veterans Memorial this year.
That’s the date when the memorial committee must turn in new names to be added to the slabs at the monument in Carthage, according to Joanne Atkins, publicity chairwoman. The names must be engraved in time for the Veterans Day ceremony in November.
Individuals wishing to add names to the monument are asked to call the Moore County Veterans Service Office at (910) 947-3257 for further information. The cost is $30 for each name.
Atkins says the committee has received an additional 45 names since the 2009 ceremony but is aware that other people are also eligible for inclusion.
