Glass monument honors veterans in North Carolina

ThinkGlass has produced a striking glass monument at the recently opened North Carolina Veterans Park in Fayetteville. As a natural material made from sand and minerals, glass is at home in the outdoors and this impressive 4-inch thick glass monument is a touching remembrance of our soldiers that will withstand the test of time.

Rising 10 feet in the air and almost 5 feet wide, this timeless piece of art was erected to honor those who have so graciously and proudly given their lives. Etched with a quote from former governor of North Carolina Thomas W. Bickett, it is a symbolic ‘Welcome Home’ homage to all the veterans.

Glass has long been a key element in architectural design, favored for its natural beauty and its ability to endure extreme weather conditions and still look brand new. Installation is cleaner, faster and produces less waste than traditional cement or drywall construction. As a radon-free substance, glass has no negative impact on air quality and qualifies for points under LEED and NAHB building guidelines. As an added benefit, ThinkGlass uses green production practices with a strong commitment to sustainability and good working conditions.
