Salute! A Tribute to America's Veterans

Because they serve,
we are free.

By purchasing a brick, or by supporting the Walk of Honor in other ways, you not only help create a lasting memorial for veterans and emergency service personnel, you also create an opportunity for awareness of the sacrifices made by those who have selflessly served our great country. Brick orders are place twice each year on Memorial Day and Veteran's Day

Kinston and Lenoir County has a  Proud     Heritage

Kinston and Lenoir County, North Carolina has played a significant role in over two hundred and fifty years of American military history.

During the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, major battles that shaped the history of our nation occurred in and around Kinston.

During World Wars I and II, tens of thousands of soldiers from military bases throughout Eastern North Carolina chose the friendly town of Kinston to visit for rest and recreation before being deployed overseas.

 The Korean War brought hundreds of Air Force Cadets to Kinston. Over several months, they learned to fly at nearby Stallings Air Force Base. This property today is known as North Carolina's Global Transpark.

All funds received from brick sales will be used only for operation, maintenance and development of the Walk of Honor.
