Mission Statement

The goal of Operation Remember is to archive the personal histories of Burleson’s veterans and present their stories in a way that encourages every generation to learn more about our veterans’ contributions to our country and our community.

What better way to learn about history than to hear it from the ones who lived it. That’s why the City of Burleson has laid the groundwork for the Burleson Veteran’s History Project linked to the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project
 

Kiosk
The City unveiled its interactive Kiosk at Veteran's Memorial Park at the Veteran's Day celebration November 2010.  The Kiosk allows vistors to search for a veteran's profile or brick location at the park. View a video of how to use the kiosk. Below is a link to perform the same search from our website.

Bricks for Veterans
Burleson Bricks for Veterans began in 2007 from the vision of a dedicated citizen and a Burleson businessman, Betty Shelton and Rocky Bransom.  The memorial began as a fountain with room for 200 bricks to be in-laid in the sidewalk, but that number quickly increased to 900, then to 1,200.  Bricks are located at Renfro Square at the corner of Renfro Street and I-35.  The bricks surround the fountain in the center of the square. Bricks include the name, branch of service, and the name of conflicts the veteran served in. The City of Burleson dedicated Veteran’s Memorial Park on Veteran’s Day 2009.  The park is located at 298 East Renfro Street in Old Town Burleson.
