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.
