Veterans Monument

The City of Highland Village desires to honor Highland Village veterans. A designated area has been established on the landscaped grounds of the Highland Village Municipal Complex, adjacent to the Armed Forces Monument and the Inland Trail, to serve as the monument.

Initially, recognition was limited to those residents killed in action while serving our country. After receiving requests to honor those who have served and survived, the City Council amended the policy to include all Highland Village veterans who meet the following criteria: the veteran, who was honorably discharged, maintained Highland Village residency for a period of at least one year at any point in the veteran’s life.

A 2” x 6” plate will be ordered by the city, and funded by the family or a sponsor, and will be placed on the stone monument in a ceremony on a date to be determined by the city. An application (PDF) must be completed and submitted to the office of the City Manager. Once approved, the plate will be ordered.
