CT's 63 Fallen Iraq and Afghanistan Heroes to be Honored

Who were these men and women? Click here...

Connecticut Trees of Honor Memorial, Inc. is pleased to announce plans to construct a living trees memorial in Veterans' Memorial Park in Middletown,CT.

The 63 heroes who gave their life serving in Iraq or Afghanistan hailed from towns and cities throughout our state. Each hero will be honored with a tree and a personalized plaque that will be displayed next to their tree.

The memorial will be funded and constructed with public donations and volunteer efforts. It will also feature walkways, flower gardens, benches, flagpoles, statues and lighting.

It will be a serene, reflective area where families, friends, and visitors can be reminded of the valiant courage, bravery, and selflessness of our Connecticut men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives in military service to our country.

There are numerous ways to help the project:

Trees
We invite state nurseries, wholesalers and retailers to donate trees.

Gardens
Adopt a Garden. Garden and civic clubs are invited to submit design plans for flowers/ shrubbery gardens. (Gardens will be maintained by the awarded club.) Contact Information on back page.
