Honoring Placentia Residents
The City of Placentia Veterans Advisory Committee established the Veterans Monument to honor residents that served in the armed forces. All of the names engraved on the monument are reviewed by the Veterans Advisory Committee.
Those with names on the monument consist of military service veterans and active duty service personnel who were raised, educated, or entered the service in Placentia, including those who listed Placentia as their hometown when enlisting.

Veterans Monument Community-Wide Fundraiser
The Veterans Advisory Committee was essential in the establishment of the Veterans Monument in 1994 to honor residents who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces. Twenty-two years later, the Veterans Monument, located in the Civic Center Complex, is reaching its capacity and is in need of expansion to accommodate future names of those that have served, are currently serving, or have paid the ultimate sacrifice in serving our Country. The Committee has embarked upon a community-wide fundraiser to raise the necessary funds to build two new panels for the Veterans Monument.
For more information on the fundraiser and to make a donation, please view the Veterans Monument Expansion Letter and Donation Form (PDF).
