Worcester County Veterans Memorial
Route 589 between Manklin Creek Road & Cathell Road
In the spring of 2003, the Ocean Pines 35th Anniversary Celebration included a “Salute to the Military”. The emotional response of the veterans who were being recognized convinced members of the event committee to earmark a portion of the event profits to create an enduring way to honor the men and women who have served our country.
The original plan was to erect a single lighted flagpole to display the American flag. However, during early meetings of the memorial committee, the idea of a veterans memorial began to emerge. By the Spring of 2004, the committee had chosen a location and decided on a tentative design. The Ocean Pines Association Board of Directors generously agreed to donate the land and the final design was approved in August 2004.
The Memorial is in the form of a circle with 5 curved brick walls that display the names of the five-armed services. Within the circle is a 5-pointed star featuring the flags of each of the services at the points. The flag of the United States is located at the center. The base of the Memorial is paved with bricks and pavers that are inscribed with the names of veterans being honored – from the Revolutionary War to the present.
Members, donors, volunteers, and visitors help make the Worcester County Veterans Memorial at Ocean Pines a beautiful and welcoming place to honor and reflect on the service and sacrifice of our veterans.
Ocean Pines is home to a large number of recreational opportunities that attract visitors from not only within the coastal region and greater Worcester County, but also throughout the state of Maryland. Some of those features include walking trails. In fact, there are six trails in Ocean Pines.
