Memorial for All Veterans.
Town of Colonie Veterans Memorial honors the men and women
from the Town of Colonie, both living and deceased, who
served in the armed forces. Although a few memorials exist
in different hamlets of the Town, this is the only memorial
in the Town of Colonie that honors all Town veterans, from
all military branches of the service and all wars.
The 2,500 square foot memorial is a welcome addition to
The Crossings of Colonie located in proximity to the children's
playground. It is hoped that the memorial will serve not
only to remember and honor the Colonie veterans that served
in the past but keep in our thoughts those serving today
as well as serve as a reminder for future generations of
the courage and sacrifice of all veterans.
The project was a
coordinated effort between the Robert L. Weininger Memorial
Post 8692, the Town of Colonie and the community. Construction
of the memorial was completed with money raised by the Colonie
Veterans Memorial Committee from businesses, residents and
through several fundraisers.
The names of Town veterans
are inscribed on stone pavers placed in front of the memorial.
These pavers are available for purchase for those wishing
to memorialize a loved one. For more information, please
And Dedicated In Memory Of All
Who Have Served And To Those Who Gave Their Lives
In The Service Of Our Country In All Her Conflicts
– By The Citizens Of The Town Of Colonie.”
