Buy a Memorial Brick, leave a legacy. Support our mission.

You can support our mission and commemorate members of your family and others who courageously protected our country by participating in the Defenders of Freedom Memorial Brick Campaign.

The campaign is a tribute to veterans who served in the military, and individuals who provided support services, keeping our country safe and free.

Your bricks will be placed along walkways around the Garrison Flag that is centered on the grounds of the historic Dayton VA Medical Center – one of the three original Soldiers Homes that became VA centers.  The flagpole is located near the Dayton National Cemetery.
