"On November 11, 2004, a new monument to honor our Veterans was dedicated in Central Park by the Mason City Veterans Memorial Association. Any Veteran that has a tie to Mason City, signed their name to the line, and completed their military obligation with an honorable discharge is eligible to have their name placed on the monument.

A contribution of $100.00 or more, along with the completed application, and copy of proof of discharge is needed in order to place the Veteran's name on the monument. Checks should be made payable to: Veterans Memorial Association. Proof of discharge can be a copy of the Veteran's DD214, Certificate of Discharge, or a copy of a current membership card to a Veteran service organization such as the VFW, American Legion, or Marine Corps League, etc. No contribution is necessary for any Veteran Killed in Action or Missing in Action.

The monument consists of 12 black granite stones, with room for 4,600 names. Names shall be continuously accepted for inclusion on the monument. Names received prior to July 31st of each year will be inscribed prior to Veterans Day (November 11). Names received after July 31 will be inscribed on the monument the next year."
