Veterans Monument Recognition Program

Ongoing project honors veterans for their service

The Round Rock Veterans Monument was built by the City of Round as a place of honor and remembrances for all that are serving or have served to protect and defend our American heritage. It is where veterans can show their pride for having served; families and friends can honor their veterans for their service; and citizens and businesses can support the recognition of those with a historical attachment to Round Rock.

HHG_7990The Round Rock Veterans Monument is located on Pecan Avenue at Veterans Park and features six columns with plaques that honor the different service branches: Army, Marine Corp, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marines. A Memorial Wall honoring veterans who have been killed in action, held as a prisoner of war, or declared missing in action is part of the Monument.

The Monument was dedicated on May 25, 2015, with 177 bronze plaques purchased by veterans or their families honoring their service. There were also 154 bronze plaques paid for by citizens and businesses that supported those veterans that are part of Round Rock history, but have no family to honor them.

Since the dedication veterans have purchased plaques to show their pride of military service, and, families and friends have honored their veterans with plaques. The work to identify veterans that are part of the history of Round Rock but without identified families continues. There are 896 names whose history is being researched.
