Our business is creating memorials for families and communities, and we’re proud to have helped build some of our nation’s greatest granite monuments. But it’s the people who create those monuments, without a lot of fanfare, that we want to highlight today: The people of Rock of Ages who served our country in the military.
Last year Polycor, our parent company, partnered with renowned Air Force photographer Stacey Pearsall who travels the country photographing veterans for The Veterans Portrait Project. For this project, which became her life mission after she became injured in combat, Pearsall has endeavored to capture veterans portraits in every state from which the Department of Defense recruits.
When she made her stop at our quarry and workshop in Barre, VT we did what we do best, we created a granite memorial to honor our staff members who served. Pearsall used it as a fitting podium for her subjects.
