As Veterans’ Day approaches, many in the community will be searching for ways to remember those who have served for our country. The Raymond F. Ratcliffe Transportation Museum is now offering a military section in our Brick Garden. The following header bricks are already in place: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy, Seabees, U.S. Armed Forces K-9 Units, U.S. Veterans of Foreign Wars – World War II, and Vietnam Veterans of America.
In addition, header bricks for the following groups have also been set in the garden: Law Enforcement K-9 Units, Fire Department, Masons, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Volunteers of Pulaski County & New River Rescue Squads, and local high schools (Pulaski County High, Pulaski High, Dublin High, and Christiansburg Institute).
Commemorative bricks can be ordered in two sizes: 4″ x 8″ for $100 and up to three lines of text, and 8″ x 8″ for $200 and up to six lines of text. Stock logos are available for the bricks for $5, and custom logos can be added for $50. Logos have already been set up for the above-mentioned schools, except for Dublin High, which didn’t have a mascot. Anyone wishing to use these logos will now only have to pay $5 rather than $50. Bricks will be placed appropriately under the designated heading in the garden, with wishes to provide a lasting impression of those involved in making our community a safer, better place. Brick order forms are available at www.theratcliffemuseum.com. Additionally, forms are available at the Ratcliffe Museum during our hours of operation: Tuesday 11-5, Friday 11-5, Saturday 11-5, and Sunday 1-5. We can be reached through our website’s contact form or by calling (540) 980-2307.
