Honor a Veteran-Family or Friend with an Engraved Brick for a great Father or Mother's Day Gift. American Legion Post #1009, located on Veterans Road in Yorktown, created Yorktown's Commemorative Park for this purpose. These unique commemorative bricks are a wonderful way to honor the military service of those you love, be they living or deceased. New bricks will be installed in the plaza twice each year and dedicated the following Memorial Day.
