Our office would like to thank CDT Alexander von Stein for his efforts and professionalism during this past spring semester of 2021. Alexander is a student at Bowling Green State University majoring in Visual Communications and is a member of BGSU’s ROTC. This semester he came on board as a BGSU Co-op Student (Intern) and accomplished a wide variety of projects and tasks for our office. He created our office logo, website, trifold, pdf fillable forms, Facebook account, and office letterhead. He made the instructional videos that are on our website showing our veterans’ software and email encryption processes. He has done an amazing job during a logistically challenging semester due to COVID. We know that you will go on to do great things both in your military and civilian life. Thank you, Alexander!!

Wood County Veterans Memorial

In 1950, the Memorial was established following a generous donation by the Wood County Chapter of the Gold Star Mothers. The memorial served to venerate the names of their sons who had died in both WWI and WWII. As the United States engaged in new conflicts, the Korean, Vietnam, and the Medal of Honor monuments were added along with the names of those who served. Recently, Master Chief Edward Byers’ name was added to the Medal of Honor monument.

Future of the Wood County Veterans Memorial

This project will include both Site Improvement and Rebuilding phases. Structural and aesthetic enhancements will provide stability and visibility to the Memorial. Notably, the revamped Memorial will be completely wheelchair accessible. During the Rebuilding phase, current monuments (Korean, Vietnam, and the Medal of Honor) will be cleaned, polished, and repaired. New WWI and WWII monuments will be brought in as near-replicas of current monuments with a single piece of granite and updated, etched names. There will be new monuments honoring the Civil War, Persian Gulf/Afghanistan, and Gold Star Families added to the Memorial.
