Names will be added annually

Because of the Memorial’s striking excellence, interest in honoring more veterans remains high. Veterans names can be added to the Memorial, and will be done according to the following guidelines.

The signup period to add veteran’s names to the Veterans Memorial at Chilton’s Klinker Park begins Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Applications to add new names to the stones at this outstanding Memorial setting will continue for a period of four months, ending on March 1.

The process is relatively simple. An application form must be completed.  Forms are available at the Chilton City Hall administrative office, the Veterans Service Officer’s office at the Calumet County Courthouse or can be downloaded by clicking the link below.

To use the website, simply scroll to the bottom of the site and you will find a blue bar.  Click on the “memorials” spot and a printable form will come up.

Plaques are available in two sizes.  One contains three lines of 13 characters on each line and costs $200. The larger form contains six lines for text or images and costs $250.

If the veteran being honored has earned a medal such as the Purple Heart or Bronze Star, the larger form is required. And in those cases the application must be accompanied by a document certifying the award such as the DD214.

If unavailable, that form can be obtained from the Calumet County Veterans Service officer at the courthouse in Chilton.
Because of the complex sandblasting process needed to etch the names in the polished stones, new names are added only once a year.  Timing of that event will be announced but the hoped for date is Memorial Day.
