Detachment 1317 Initiative: Buy a Brick for Puller Park

The Middlesex Museum and Historical Society has decided to dedicate a piece of their property to a permanent marker for PULLER PARK.  This is a very small piece of land that was dedicated last November when they moved an original marker from a piece of land that had been used as the park was being sold.  A flagpole has been erected and now they are selling memorial bricks to commemorate Chesty's Legacy by having Marines, FMF Corpsman or any Veteran or person wishing to purchase a brick for the park.

To order a brick, fill out the attached and mail it to Middlesex County Museum & Historical Society, PO Box 121 Saluda, Va. 23149.
