Memorial Campaign

Never forget
their sacrifice.

Your contribution will build a memorial that honors homegrown heroes who have dedicated their lives to protect and serve DeKalb County, Alabama.



To Go


Our mission is to honor the dedicated men and women from Dekalb County who have served in the military, police department, fire department or as a first responder by building a Patriots Memorial Park. We have always been proud of our heroes and their sacrifice, past and present.  In a community effort we plan to display our gratitude by establishing a memorial that will stand for generations to come.

This project originated with the Dekalb County VFW and became a community mission after partnering with the city of Fort Payne and the DeKalb County Fire & Police departments.

The DeKalb County Veterans Memorial is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is currently in the fundraising process to accomplish its goal to forever honor local heroes.

Residents, corporations, and organizations can contribute by making pledges, purchasing pavers and participating in fundraising events to support the construction of The Patriots Memorial Park. All contributions are tax deductible.

Thank you for your continued support of the Fort Payne DeKalb County Veterans Memorial.
