Donate to the New OB Veterans Memorial Plaza Fund

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. #RespectAndHonorVeterans
