In honor of the Veterans who have served in the armed forces, the City of La Vergne will be holding its annual Veterans Day Ceremony on November 11 at Veterans Memorial Park located at 115 Floyd Mayfield Drive.

The ceremony will begin at 11:00 a.m. We will have speakers and will spend some time honoring and thanking military veterans. More details and a list of speakers will be available at a later date.

Purchase a Flag for a Veteran

The Parks and Recreation Department will be offering flags that can be purchased for $10 to honor your veteran. The flag will be a 3’ x 5’ American flag attached to a 6 ft. pole that will also display your veteran's information. The flags can be purchased thru the Parks and Recreation Department. Flags are limited. The flags will be put on display and they will be yours to take home after the conclusion of the ceremony. Please contact the Parks and Recreation office at (615) 793-3224 or stop by 294 Sand Hill Road.

Buy a Brick for Veterans Memorial Wall

The service and sacrifices our veterans have made for our country have earned them our lasting gratitude. The City of La Vergne has built a memorial wall at Veterans Memorial Park to honor family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues who have served in the U.S. armed forces. The wall is a permanent commemorative display that is lined with bricks engraved with the names of honored men and women who have served our great country.

Anyone who has served honorably in the armed forces or is currently on active duty is eligible to be put on the wall. The cost of a brick is $35 and you may select up to 4 lines, with 21 characters per line (including spaces and symbols). If you need assistance finding a Veteran's military information, please use the link provided on the City’s website below to submit form SF180 to the National Personnel Records Center.

To order a brick visit www.lavergnetn.gov/199/Buy-a-Brick to fill out the online form or download a form that can be dropped off at La Vergne Parks and Recreation located at 294 Sand Hill Road. If you have questions, contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 615-793-3224.
