Purple Heart Memorial Planned For Oak Ridge Cemetery

A new military memorial will go up at Oak Ridge Cemetery, alongside similar monuments dedicated to those who fought in World War II, Korea and Vietnam


The Military Order of the Purple Heart will raise funds over the next one to two years to build the stone memorial, in honor of all Purple Heart recipients. 


The total cost and exact design of the monument has not been determined, and details on the fundraising effort are still being formulated. 


Under an agreement with the state, the Historic Preservation Agency will be responsible for care and upkeep of the monument.
