This memorial park is filled with tributes to local veterans from the Revolutionary War to the Global War on Terror. This picture shows a few in one view of the park. The plaques with names of those that died in the Global War on Terror are in the forefront while the Vietnam Memorial is in the background.
Note that this park was so large that we split off the memorials to Vietnam veterans and WWII veterans into separate posts. These pictures here are of the park and the remaining tributes.
The general plaque dedicated to those that fought and died in the Global War on Terror.
This is a beautiful park located along the Pensacola Bay.
Of course the American flag flies high over the site along with the POW-MIA flag in honor of those that never came home.
This clock honors those that have served in the Marine Corps aviation – past, present, and future. More pictures in the gallery of the base with many names of those that died serving.
This bench and the bricks below are honoring those from the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association.
An interesting memorial to the Korean War veterans. Again, more pictures are in the gallery.
This stone memorial is to honor those that were wounded and received the purple heart while serving our country.
Tribute to those veterans that served during WWI.
This one goes all the way back to the Revolutionary War. The inscriptions are inspirations on those who founded our country.
One of the smallest, yet most touching, memorials is that dedicated to the children that wait for their mom or dad to come home from war.
This is a very well done memorial park. It has much more than the WWII memorial which we will touch on in a separate post.
