Wicomico War Veterans' Memorial

Wicomico County War Memorial

The Wicomico Youth & Civic Center is itself a living war memorial, with each of its rooms named after historically important military conflicts: Normandy, Midway, Da Nang and Flanders. Outside the venue stands the Wicomico War Veterans' Memorial, erected in 2002 to honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the United States Army, Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard, Marines and Merchant Marines. It was built entirely from donations and in-kind labor from area businesses.

The memorial flies flags from each service branch along with a United States, Maryland, Wicomico County and POW-MIA flag. The flags fly proudly over a brick wall displaying bronze plaques with the names of Wicomico County's fallen veterans from World War I to today.

Over 190 names are engraved on the outdoor memorial's bronze plaques. These fallen war heroes are listed in alphabetical order by the war in which they served.  To further preserve the memory of those lost, the War Memorial Committee actively seeks background information of each individual. Those who can share stories or offer photos are asked to call Linda Lyons at 410-548-4900 ext. 115.

To complement the outdoor War Memorial, a Veterans' Tree of Honor was added to the WY&CC lobby in 2005. Family and friends of both living and deceased veterans are invited to honor their loved ones with a visible reminder of their service – an engraved gold leaf. Leaves can be purchased for $100 by contacting Linda Lyons at 410-548-4900 ext. 115 or you can download a form.

The outside Wicomico War Veterans' Memorial and Veterans' Tree of Honor are the result of an active War Memorial Committee. The mission of the committee is to honor the armed forces from Wicomico County who lost their lives while serving the United States during war. The Wicomico War Memorial will be maintained into perpetuity to mark the sacrifice of these heroes and the high price of the freedom we share.

The Wicomico War Veterans' Memorial is open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
