Here's How it works..



We believe that every veteran deserves a tangible way of being publicly recognized for his or her service. Our StepStone campaign offers all who served our country a special place of remembrance at the Alabama Veterans Memorial Park. Each StepStone is a four by eight inch paver engraved with the honored veteran’s name, rank, and branch of service.  These StepStones are permanently installed twice a year beneath the 132 foot high American Flag in the American Flag Plaza at the end of the Memorial Trail.  Click Here to see the list of currently installed StepStones.


The Alabama Veterans Memorial Foundation hosts two StepStone Ceremonies yearly (the Sunday before Memorial Day and the Sunday before Veterans Day)  to dedicate the pavers to the honored veterans and also to give family, friends, and colleagues an opportunity to say a few words about the honored veteran’s service to our country. 


StepStone veterans may be from any state, any time, and any branch of service. The only requirement is that they have served our country.  Veterans groups may also purchase a StepStone to honor their group.  


For the purchase of a StepStone your tax-deductible $100 may be mailed to the address below.   Please print the StepStone Order Form (click below) and either mail or email the completed form.   You will receive an acknowledgement letter for tax purposes and an invitation to the next StepStone Ceremony.

Identifying Courage

Stories of Alabama Veterans


Tucked away in the closets and attics amidst withered scrapbooks and newspaper clippings are stories of men and women who were called upon to fight for their country and they answered. At the Alabama Veterans Memorial, we don't think those who fought, whether it be WWI or the Global War on Terrorism, should ever be forgotten.


Our book, entitled Identifying Courage, is a compilation of stories designed to identify the courage of people all around us, both living and dead, who fought for the freedom of their country. The book includes detailed accounts of ordinary people who were asked to do something extraordinary. The stories chronicle heroism in every conflict of the 20th Century and include actual family photos and recollections from family members and veterans alike.
