On November 11, 2011 hundreds gathered to pay tribute and remember those who have served this country at the new Cornelius Veterans Monument. A long time vision of the late Mayor Harold Little gives home to over 1,100 names of veterans living or deceased that are or were Cornelius residents.
The Town continues to collect names of Cornelius veterans interested in having their name inscripted. If you or a loved one has served in the United States Armed Forces, received an honorable discharge, and lived in Cornelius at some point, your name can be engraved on the wall.
If you would like to have a name added to the wall, complete the Name Inscription Application and submit it on-line or by mail. The deadline for the 2016 inscription is October 3, 2016.
If you have any questions, please contact the Town Clerk for further assistance.
