Veterans Affairs

The Veterans Memorial at Johnson County announces the addition of three new pieces of granite, replacing 159 inscriptions that were damaged during the derecho in August of 2020.

Established by the Board of Supervisors on January 24, 2013, the Veterans Memorial stands as a testament to the gratitude owed to our veterans. Since its dedication on Veterans Day in 2013, the Memorial has continually expanded its reach. It is a permanent place of honor for families, friends, and community members to visit, reflect, and remember those who served our country, and now honors 1022 veterans.

To continue honoring veterans and preserving their legacies, the Memorial welcomes new orders for recognition. Veterans do not need to be Johnson County residents to be honored. The cost to inscribe the name of an honored veteran is $200.

An order form, veteran biographies, and the history of the memorial are available at

The success of the Veterans Memorial project is recognized with state (ISAC) and national (NACO) awards and is a collaborative effort among various departments, including the Board of Supervisors, the Veterans Affairs Commission, and the Information Technology and Physical Plant departments.
