The City of Ridgeland honored its past, present, and future military heroes on Memorial Day with the grand opening of its Veterans Memory Park.
After more than a year of planning and construction, Ridgeland officially dedicated and cut the ribbon on its newest park, which pays tribute to veterans.
Veterans’ Memory Park features engraved bricks that were purchased by local families to honor their loved ones, plaques dedicated to all of the military’s branches, and a bell tower.
Wells Marble was fortunate to have the opportunity to purchase a plaque in honor of former firm member, Erskine W. Wells, Sr. Erskine proudly served in the U.S. Marine Corp. until being discharged with the rank of Major. During his time in the military, he was awarded the Navy Cross for extraordinary heroism and the Silver Star. For more information about Erskine W. Wells, Sr., please click here.
