“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.” – George Washington
The Reno County Veterans Memorial is dedicated to remembering all those who have bravely served and represented Reno County in all branches of the US military. Reno County veterans, living or deceased from all conflicts and eras are recognized for their contributions to protecting American freedom at home and abroad. Located in South Hutchinson, the Reno County Memorial represents the commitment of all citizens of Reno County to honor those who chose to enter into military service.
It is community based project to build an enduring monument to the contributions of those who have served in the military. Led by a partnership with the American Legion, VFW and the City of South Hutchinson, a proposed site was developed near the intersection of K-96 and US-50. A driving force behind the project is the desire for location to hold ceremonies, celebrations and remembrances of all those who proudly served.Contributions and encouragement from many local businesses led to the creation of a design and site plan for the memorial.
