Honor * Protect* Remember

Plaque 1
Portsmouth Memorial Park Dedicated November 2013 Displayed at the center of this memorial, are the granite foundation abutments that supported the memorial bridge for eighty-eight years, memorializing the past, present and future, these blocks now symbolize the strength of the heroic souls of the men and women who have courageously served our country and bravely risked their lives to protect our way of life. J.W. Teetzel

Plaque 2
: We honor the Army and Navy Association Dedicated November 2013 The Army and Navy association was established to provide recreational quarters for the military personnel stationed in the area or visiting the city. In 1916, a building that is still stands today was erected to fulfill this mission and provide a space for recreation, social events, and lodging. People serving our country far from home became a part of our community as a result of this hospitality. The Army and Navy Association and its spirit of welcoming and generosity shown to our military personnel will be forever appreciated.
