Dedication service honors CAPS, veterans

July 1, 2014
Marietta Times

On Saturday, July 5, from noon to 2 p.m. there will be a dedication service at the Veterans Walk of Honor at noon and then everyone is invited to a picnic afterwards to celebrate this event and to honor the Citizens Armory Preservation Society (CAPS) for their work toward the preservation and renovation of the Armory. The Washington County Veterans Service Commission donated five granite benches to commemorate the five branches of service which will be dedicated at the Veterans Walk of Honor at noon. The Veteran Service Commission is made up of representatives from the: VFW, Veterans of foreign Wars; AL, American Legion; DAV, Disabled Veterans of America: AMVETS, American Veterans; Military Order of the Purple Heart. The benches being put in place are engraved with the names of the five military services: Army, Navy, Marines Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard. Roy Ash and the Commission have been active partners in the renovation of the Armory. Since the beginning of the renovation process they agreed to rent a space as a satellite office. This room is part of Phase 3 - the renovation of the ground floor. According to Ash, in the beginning the office will be open three days a week from 8 or 9 a.m. to noon depending on the interest. If 10 to 2 or 12 to 4 is better that would be considered also. Ash said they would explore various options to see what works out best for local people. At other times the room can be used by veterans for various activities.
