Time and again America has called on Colorado's sons and daughters to defend the world's freedom. Thousands who answered the call never returned.To visit The Colorado Freedom Memorial on your trip to Aurora, use our Aurora day trip planning website.
DO YOU KNOW WHO THEY WERE?
Over 6,000 Colorado veterans left their homes, and our communities to make the world a better place and were killed in action, defending our Freedom.
HOW WILL YOU HONOR THEIR SACRIFICE?
The Colorado Freedom Memorial gives us all a place to pay respects to the memory of those that did not return. The Memorial is constructed of glass that will reflect Colorado's mountains and blue skies; at 14-feet tall and 125-feet long, the glass panels are etched with the names of the over 6000 who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. Privates, Generals, MIAs, Civilians, all wars and all branches of service, honored in one place. There is NO memorial in America like it.
Thanks for your continued support! Please share our efforts with everyone you know and lets make sure no one ever forgets the lives given for our future.
The Colorado Freedom Memorial reviews
We visited the Freedom Memorial end of May. Very beautiful, peaceful location. Names etched in glass pay tribute to so many who gave their lives. I am told evening time when Memorial is illuminated...

The story behind the idea, design, creation & build is one that my eyes left damp. Thank you to the man behind the idea & main catalyst of the Colorado Freedom Memorial, Rick Crandall, for the explanation, stories & tour! I look forward to the future Welcome Center. As well as for future Coloradans for generations to come, to learn & pay their respects to thoes who have served & paid the ultimate sacrifice from Colorado.
Came to see this memorial while we were in Aurora. My husband has a friend he served with on the wall here. Was a very beautiful and simple display to pay respect and to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. As a veteran it always hits harder to see these memorials but it's also nice to know those who lost their lives are not forgotten ❤
