MIA/KIA Memorial Monuments

KIA-MIA Memorial

Tracy Park, located between 9th and Gay streets, is home to the MIA-KIA Memorial which was dedicated in 1993. The memorial lists the names of servicemen from our area who were killed or are missing as a result of a war.

The bricks that make the floor of the memorial have the names of servicemen on them as well. Residents purchased bricks and had them engraved with the name of a loved one as part of the fundraising activities held to purchase the monument.

 

A fund has been established to pay for the upkeep of the monument, which includes lighting, beautiful landscaping and a flag. Benches form a horseshoe at the rear so one can sit and read the names. On the rear of the monument itself is the inscription: "In honor and memory of all veterans of Scioto County who served our country in times of peace and war. And to those who paid the supreme sacrifice so that we may enjoy freedom. Their spirit, devotion, a love of country will be forever remembered.

 

"Take a moment and Please read the names for each war:
