Stanford Baptist Church has always paid tribute to our veterans.

We honor them even more with a Veteran’s Cross of Honor Walkway.  Bricks with a veteran’s name, branch of service and years served are laid in the shape of a cross.  There is a monument in the center of the cross with symbols of each branch of service and an inscription dedicating the walkway to all veterans and those who are currently serving.

Vietnam Veterans came from 6 different states to see their bricks and to pay tribute to fallen brothers from their platoon.

If you are a veteran and want a brick placed in the walkway, or want to honor a veteran of someone currently serving, for a tax deductible gift of $50, the information will be placed on a 4" x 8" brick.
