“Honors all American veterans”
This Memorial honors all American veterans who, although separated by generations, share a common undeniable goal - to valiantly protect our country's freedoms. This Memorial, conceived in 1995, was built without tax dollars due to the time, talent and treasure contributed by the Memorial Committee and the countless other volunteers who also contributed to honor those who served. The Wall of Remembrance was created to honor Veterans from Southeast Minnesota who died serving our country and dedicated to all who serve to help keep us free. May it remind future generations that our nation must be protected from forces, both outside and within, that would deny us our liberty. The Wall of Remembrance honors over 3,000 Service men and women from Southeast Minnesota who gave their lives in service to their country. The Walk of Remembrance is made up of about 6,000 pavers honoring US Veterans and our Allies living or dead for their service. The Trees of Remembrance: 50 sponsored trees represent every state in the United States.
The memorial is very beautiful and explains each of the wars that are represented in the Memorial. Not far from the memorial is a playground. My girls (7&3) LOVED this playground. It’s made out of wood and composite decking. It looks like a fort with bridges, a climbing wall, a tiny tots area, a sand area with dump trucks, and a lot more. My kids did not want to leave and I was incredibly impressed by the layout, activities, and cleanliness.
