The Reno County Veterans’ Memorial is a tribute to our compatriots who served in all branches of the U.S. Military from the Civil War through today.
Inspired by the National Vietnam Memorial and local veterans’ memorials around the country, the Reno County Veterans’ Memorial will be showcased on Discovery Loop in South Hutchinson — an easily accessible, highly visible location.
The Memorial will feature the names of veterans from Reno County, or those who called Reno County home. The estimated 10,000 to 15,000 names will be on seven stately granite panels — listed from those who served in the Civil War through today.
We want to be sure as many as possible of these deserving patriots receive this recognition, and we invite your help. If you know of veterans, whether ancestors or current family members, please submit their names at renocountyveterans.com. If you prefer, you can get printed forms at any City hall in Reno County and at the Reno County Courthouse.
The Reno County Veterans’ Memorial is a community-based project dedicated to remembering all those who have bravely served and represented us in all branches of the U.S. Military. Reno County veterans, living and deceased, from all conflicts and eras will be recognized for their contributions to protecting American freedom at home and abroad.
The Memorial represents the commitment of all citizens of Reno County to honor those who entered into military service.
Led by a partnership of the American Legion, VFW, and the City of South Hutchinson, a proposed site was selected near the intersection of K-96, K-61, and U.S. 50. The primary impetus for the project is the desire for a centralized location for ceremonies, celebrations, and remembrances of all those who proudly served our country.
The attractive Memorial grounds will also feature two displays of retired military vehicles as well as flags representing all branches of the U.S. Military.
Contributions and encouragement from many local businesses led to the creation of a design and site plan for the memorial.
