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.
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. To visit The Colorado Freedom Memorial on your trip to Aurora, use our Aurora day trip planning website .

Peaceful with views of the Front Range. It's kind of in an industrial area. They light up the place with candles during Memorial Day. Easy to find a name at the information kiosk.
Good place to visit on Memorial Day to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice. All gave some, some gave all. Also a very peaceful place to enjoy any time of year. Reservations may be made for the pavilion if you want to hold an event here, which I highly recommend.
