Why do we place bricks?
When men and women protect our freedom, will we stand ready to place a marker of their courage and strength?
Bricks of Honor are permanent tributes that honor the memory of an individual veteran. All the bricks are located on the circle surrounding the Soldier’s and Sailor’s Monument.
Your contribution provides a visual demonstration of your commitment to the brave men and women who have guarded our freedom for generations.
A brick can be purchased for $100. Each brick represents a tax deductible charitable contribution. It will be engraved with the service member’s name, rank, branch of service and dates of service. Bricks are prepared and installed on a quarterly basis, as weather permits.
About the Foundation
Indianapolis devotes more public space to honoring the service and sacrifice of veterans of the armed forces than any other U.S. city. Only Washington, D.C. has more veterans’ monuments.
The Indiana War Memorials Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, maintains and expands support for the enhancement of museum exhibits and new projects to better tell the stories of American veterans, including the restoration of the War Memorials’ irreplaceable collection of Indiana Civil War regimental battle flags.
It supports two museums and three parks on 25 acres in downtown Indianapolis filled with statuary, sculpture, monuments, and fountains honoring American veterans.
