Maysville Veterans Memorial & Visitors Center

The American Veterans (AMVETS) in Maysville Kentucky are planning to build a veterans memorial and visitors center to honor soldiers who fell in U.S. conflicts. The location will be the former Simon Kenton fort, which is historical in its own right. Here, Gene Hook, Post Commander for the AMVETS Post 124, talks about some of their past projects and future goals, including the memorial park.

At the end of the clip (05:12 mark), you can preview what the park may look like when it is completed through the wonders of computer 3-D animation. For more information about the project and how you can contribute, please visit the AMVETS website at

My contribution: The video was shot by Gene Hook. I created the 3-D conceptual animation of the park. Google Video kind of over-compressed the animation so it doesn't look quite as good here as it does on the DVD it was made for.

It's been awhile since I've been down to the old courthouse. I'm going to have to go and snap a picture of the memorial.

Jeremy, great job on the animation.
Gene, great project, good luck.
Back in the 70 s I was President of the local Jaycee chapter. We raised the money and established the memorial that is on the old court house lawn. Any chance that this could be incorporated into the park and moved ?
