The memorial offers visitors a feeling of tranquility, honor and respect of our nation’s veterans. It includes a curved wall to the back dedicated to the branches of service and the wars they served, with their flags flying in the background, bracketing an American flag with a POW/MIA banner below it. In the center, there is a 6-ton granite globe, 5-feet in diameter. The array is sitting among pavers and benches, each sold to raise money for the project initially. Pavers continue to be available for sale to honor each Veteran. Click here to learn more about purchasing a paver.
