Veterans Memorial at Dorset Park
South Burlington, Vermont

Dore + Whittier provided in-kind design services for the South Burlington Veterans Committee’s “Pathway of Honor” project.

The Memorial consists of three separate structures placed along a winding pathway to venerate all veterans, past and present, and to create a place of meaningful experience for visitors. The first commemorative is a larger-than-life dog tag inscribed, “A Pathway of Honor for all Veterans.” The second memorial is a 10-foot tall steel cylinder, wherein the theaters of war are carved out in large letters around the column, and with sunlight or an evening spotlight, the letters will reflect on the stone base. The third monument is a Vermont granite sculpture featuring brass insignias of all the service branches. The inscription reads, “The citizens of South Burlington dedicate this memorial to all veterans who have served our country with honor. All gave some, some gave all.”
