Captain Leon Lock Veterans Memorial

The Hampden Township Veterans Recognition Committee (HTVRC) developed a Veterans Park on Hampden Township property at 4345 Marketplace Way, Enola, PA 17025.  The park is anchored by the Captain Leon Lock Veterans Memorial where members of the community can gather for celebrations and observances in honor of veterans. The memorial features an amphitheater centered on the United States Flag and flags representing the seven individual military services – Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Space Force, Coast Guard, and the Merchant Marines.  In addition, a flag pole honoring service members who are missing in action or prisoners of war will be placed near the memorial. Visible to travelers on several roadways including Interstate 81, the memorial is a prominent display of the pride and gratitude felt by members of our community for the service and sacrifices of our veterans.

​Named for Captain Leon Lock, a WWII veteran, the memorial includes twelve beautiful granite etched monuments that commemorate conflicts the U.S. military has fought in throughout our country’s history.  These Points of Remembrance monuments are etched with artwork showing prominent figures, battles, along with a brief description highlighting the number of men and women who served and made the ultimate sacrifice.

The park has benefited from the efforts of many local organizations, businesses, and Eagle Scout projects.

The HTVRC hosts services observing Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Patriots Day, National Vietnam Veterans Day and Pearl Harbor Day at the park each year. We hope that this park and memorial serves as a gathering place for friends, families, and neighbors to honor the service and sacrifice of veterans.
