The City of Milton will once again display commemorative markers for Veterans Day, Friday, Nov. 11, and in preparation is adding veterans into the city's registry of service men and women.
Through more than three years of hard work and the generosity of residents, Milton has amassed a list of more than 200 fallen veterans memorialized with markers placed on Deerfield Parkway the week of the holiday, according to a news release by the city's Communications manager, Jason Wright.
Each year residents ask how their family members may be added to the registry. The city does not have access to a government database revealing who served in the military. Instead, we need you to tell us.
Milton City Hall
13000 Deerfield Parkway Suite 107A
Milton GA 30004
Attn: Jason Wright
There is also an online form available anytime at the City of Milton Web site.
Once you give the City of Milton the information, it will be placed in a secure database. The names will then be sent to City Councilman Bill Lusk, who for four years has personally built, painted, engraved and placed the markers at his own expense.
The names will then also be used in the City of Milton's yearly Memorial Day service.
Only veterans who have passed away receive markers. Living veterans will have their service recognized with inclusion in lists printed for Memorial and Veterans day.
