Create an itinerary including Alabama Veterans Memorial Park
An important mission of the Alabama Veterans Memorial is to educate young people about war and peace and civic responsibility. Today's high school students were not born when the last US troops left Vietnam, and, if recent test results are valid, today's college students have almost no knowledge of WWI and WWII and even less of the Korean Conflict.

We should be thankful for our children's lack of experience with war, but if we aren't careful, the blessing of peace can lead to ignorance of the past and a dangerous complacency about the future.

The Alabama Veterans Memorial welcomes school groups of all ages. To arrange a student outing and guided tour of the Memorial, contact us today.

  • The satnav of our rental Jeep had some problems finding it, it guided us to dead end north of the memorial with no way to get to it. But when we finally found it we enjoyed the peace and serenity of the place - no one else was there.
  • Peaceful place and a must see for patriotic people everywhere.
