Honor, dignity and respect have been earned by those who serve in our nation's military. To salute these heroes, Mooresville citizens banded together to update the Mooresville Veterans Memorial on the campus of Newby Elementary School. On its 60th anniversary, November 8, 2008, the memorial was expanded to include Mooresville area-soldiers lost in recent years as well as many other upgrades honoring these patrons. We will continue upgrades in the future as well.
A "Walk of Freedom" has been created from bricks purchased by the public to honor those who have served in any branch of the military during war or peace. A special section of bricks honors those who have supported troops from the home front, such as military families, World War II farmers, and others. Bricks can be purchased at any time and will be placed on Memorial Day and Veterans Day each year if the minimum number of bricks has been met.
