Memorial Bricks and Veterans Memorial Bricks

Veterans’ memorials or war memorials use engraved memorial bricks or tiles as a permanent way to pay respect to loved ones that have passed away or have been killed in the line of duty. Polar Engraving has engraved thousands of commemorative bricks for churches, families, cemeteries, fire and police departments, and Veteran Associations around the country. We also offer brick arrays for creating centerpieces that will enhance and transmit the message behind your brick memorial.

How can engraved brick memorial fundraisers help veterans?

 Brick memorial fundraisers, like Honor A Veteran Buy A Brick, can be used to support our servicemen and women after they have come home. Although there are many government-funded programs to help veterans, sometimes the money provided is still not enough. Veteran brick programs can help with extra medical expenses, rehabilitation, and care for both physical injuries and mental scars like PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Money raised can aid with the training and care of service dogs that assist them both physically and emotionally. These conditions not only affect our military men and women, but they also have an impact on their families. Veteran brick campaigns can help those who are still serving. Your organization can use brick donations to provide assistance for our soldiers and support their families back at home. Bricks for veterans are a wonderful way to salute those who have served and give them recognition.

Polar Engraving has worked with many veterans organizations across the country such as the American Legion, AMVETS, Disabled American Veterans, VFW’s, and helped them achieve their objectives.

Where do you place engraved bricks or tiles in Veteran Memorials?

 Memorial bricks are mostly placed in the design of walkways, or in memorial parks and gardens in combination with artistic brick arrays.

Memorial Walkways

 A memorial brick walkway commemorates the Armed Forces that have served in various conflicts around the world. A typical brick walkway will use bricks laid on the ground to remind people of those who have defended their nation.

Usually, engraved bricks used in a war memorial display a simple inscription in a form of a message.

Polar Engraving can engrave in a variety of fonts and languages at no increased cost, and we offer the ability to add your personal logo or symbol to an engraved paver. Additionally, a huge variety of brick designs and patterns are available!

Memorial Parks and Memorial Gardens

Our professional brick and tile engraving services are used to build memorial parks and gardens. Those places of commemoration give people an opportunity for reflection and mourning and are designed to create a peaceful atmosphere as they walk around the memorial bricks.

Furthermore, we can help Veterans in composing that special message that will dignify the memory of those who have dedicated their lives to the nation. In addition, our laser engraved pavers and tiles can be utilized for fundraising purposes.

Memorial Brick Arrays

A memorial brick array is the engraving of your message, logo, inscription, or emblem across several bricks or tiles. Arrays are incredibly popular for big fundraising events across all types of organizations, and among individuals who want to recognize more than just one person. Examples include military units, Veterans charity organizations, and lists of names of those who disappeared in action.

Commemorating Veterans’ Day, Memorial Day, and Flag Day.

 We understand that each inscription engraved is a tribute to the life of a hero, a father, a son, a mother, or a daughter – but we realize that there is more than that.

Polar Engraving helps you design a message to remember your dearest one on November 11th on Veteran’s Day,  create a homage to those who have died while serving in the US Military on Memorial Day, and celebrate the creation of the flag of America, as well as the United States Army, on June, 14th.

We want to make sure that you can leave a special mark like the name, the battalion, and any other recognition message on a forever brick. memorial brick array example with logo, phrase, and sizings

What kind of inscriptions or messages can I include on my memorial bricks and tiles?

Choosing what inscription or phrase to select on your memorial brick, especially when it comes to honoring your loved one, can be challenging.

Memorial inscriptions can be diverse, from traditional phrases to more unique, heartfelt messages more specific to the person being commemorated. However, selecting a simple text is often the best. We want to give you a list of typical pieces of writing as an inspiration for you to decide from.
