Community Veterans' Park

The Community Veterans' Park is located right next to the Reynolds City Park on Main Street.  In the center of the park is a gravesite of rocks which is in recognition of those soldiers killed on the battlefield, a silhouette of a soldier kneeling beside the grave represents the souls of all those killed in action, and a troop-carrying truck is the background to that scene.  Behind the truck are seven flags--the American flag in the center, five flags representing the of the armed forces, and the MIA-POW flag.  There is a V-shaped brick sidewalk starts at the entrance between two pillars adorned with eagles.  Along the sidewalk are marble benches and podiums with the soldiers' names inscribed on them. 

Anyone person in the military from anywhere in the United States can have their name on the memorials--there are individuals from Reynolds, Grand Forks, Washington state, Montana, and the East Coast.  The veterans' park represents the American Legion clubs of Reynolds, Buxton, and Thompson. 

If you are interested in having the name of a veteran added to the park or would like to make a donation, please contact:  Bob Lebacken, Susie Kuster, Jeff Syverson, Arlan Vonesh, Dale Burke, or Allan Krogstad.
