New OB Veterans Memorial Plaza Fund

$1,745 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 16 months
Ocean Beach Veterans Plaza was constructed in 1997 as a memorial to honor those that have served and are still serving in the armed forces. Over time, the plaza has become worn down due to the corrosive nature of salt air and a high amount of foot traffic.

This memorial is currently in disrepair with many of the inscriptions, including a Medal of Honor recipient, being so eroded that they have become illegible.


The OBCDC, along with the OB Town Council, OB Mainstreet Association, OB Planning Board, OB Community Foundation, and the OB Historical Society, have set out to rebuild a brand new Veterans Plaza that will last as a place of respect and honor for all veterans who bravely served our country.

We are now in the process of working on actual construction documents to break ground, as well as, fundraising to secure all of the construction costs. Maintenance costs for the future of this plaza will be secured by the donations for each inscription on the wall.

These are men and women who fought and, for some, paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. We need to come together as a community to pay our respect and honor those who protected us.

Together with your donations and other grants for which we have applied, we can build a new, better Veteran's Memorial Plaza - will you please consider donating today? Any amount truly helps; whatever you can afford to give will mean so much to our community and the Veteran's families.

Thank you for your support, and please share this with your family & friends to ask them to donate to help us pay respect and honor these brave Veterans.

Here is why we need your help.

The current Veterans Plaza is in disrepair with many of the inscriptions, including a Medal of Honor recipient, being so eroded by the corrosive nature of the salt air and a high amount of foot traffic, that many of the names have become illegible.

These are men and women who fought and, for some, paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. We need to come together as a community to pay our respect and honor those who protected us by building a more respectful place of honor for our Veterans.

The OBCDC, along with the OB Town Council, OB Mainstreet Association, OB Planning Board, OB Community Foundation, and the OB Historical Society, have set out to rebuild a brand new Veterans Plaza that will last as a place of respect and honor; a granite wall with the names inscribed within. You can see the design on our website: http://www.obcdc.org/veterans-plaza/

We have already secured all the necessary permits, have already secured a community based design for the new Veterans Plaza, and are ready to build the new Veterans Plaza Memorial....we just need to raise the money to start construction on the project.

We have an initial goal of $10,000 to get the current 84 Veterans names off the ground and restore the ground where the current plaza resides. We are on our way to reaching that goal, but we need your help so our plans and permits won't be in vain.

Please join our effort with a donation of $20, $50, $100, $250, or even more. And please share this with your family and friends to help us spread the word. Every bit will help us to build a respectful place of honor for our Veterans – Thank you for your support!
