We learned last week the requested changes to the pavilion that we sent to Reed’s are not available thus we are having to look elsewhere.  We have a possible new vendor but won’t know anything for sure until next week.  We’ll keep you posted.  God Bless to All!!

Hello Everyone!

Got a call yesterday from a couple that was walking at the park.  They were kind enough to inform us the U.S. flag and the POW/MIA flag both needed to be replaced as they were tattered.  Thank you so much for the call!!!   We replaced those flags this morning and have also ordered new flags for each military branch as we noticed it won’t be long before they need to be replaced as well.  Thanks again for the call!!

On another note, we’re getting ever closer to the pavilion being placed in the park. Requested changes have been sent to Reed’s and we are awaiting new architectural drawings and a new rendering.  We’ll keep you posted as things progress. God Bless to All!!!


Please continue to check “Updates” for future information concerning brick orders and events at the Park and always keep up with us on FB @ Desoto County Veterans Park.


The first Veterans Park to honor ALL our nation’s heroes opened Oct. 7th, 2017 and to our knowledge there is no other park like this in the country.  This beautiful park is located in Southaven, Ms. at I-55 and Church Road, Exit 287, between Southern Thunder Harley Davidson and the DeSoto County Visitors Center south of Memphis, Tn.  Our park is unique in that it is not just a Memorial Park to honor those who are deceased but a Veterans Park to show our appreciation to the living for their service and even includes picnic tables.  We are so proud to be able to honor our most precious citizens and members of the largest family in the world, our Veterans.  Imagine walking through the events that shaped our country, to think of that ancestor, that parent, that spouse, that child, that brother, sister, aunt, uncle, or cousin that was part of making our country what it is today.  Their sacrifice should not be minimized and cannot be measured, it can only be honored.


The park honors ALL U.S. Veterans, beginning with the Revolutionary War to the present War on Terror, including the Middle East and Caribbean Regions Conflicts.  The beautiful bronze plaques are from International Bronze of Fort Myers, FL. and include a plaque dedicated to those who gave the Ultimate Sacrifice, one to honor our dogs, horses and pigeons as “The Also Served”, 12 individual plaques (one for each war or conflict), 6 emblems and flags representing each branch of the military, a “Walk of Honor”, bordered with bricks (see below)  honoring U.S. Veterans, the POW/MIA chair and flag, and a Sponsorship plaque. Visit the DeSoto Veterans Park, walk through the history of our country, & honor the Veterans that fought to preserve our freedoms & frequently check in with us on FB @ DeSoto County Veterans Park.

Brick may be purchased to honor any U.S. Veteran, both past and presently serving, for any war or conflict or for time served regardless of whether they were in theater or not and regardless of where they were born, lived, or are now living, for $125.00.  Anyone can purchase bricks but the name on the brick must be a VETERAN.  Families will be kept together on the “Walk of Honor”.  The one requirement is if there is a reference to a Bronze Star, Silver Star, Purple Heart, or Medal of Honor, the applicant must include a DD-214 to avoid Stolen Honor.  These awesome bricks are from Brick Markers of West Palm Beach, FL and are printed with the latest laser machine and border the “Walk of Honor” across the top of the levee at the north end of the park.  Mail your brick form and your check or money order made payable to DeSoto Veterans Park Association, Inc. and mail to the address on the form.   You can also use the PayPal Donation Button and include the Confirmation # on the “Unit Price” line on the brick form and mail to the same address or email the form to dmoore1776@aol.com.  We receive an email from PayPal and can confirm your order with the Confirmation # on the PayPal notification.  Click here to download the purchase order.
