  • Very well done ! We have seen many memorials across the country. This one pays tribute to the people who served, from Western Colorado. Many seem to just want to display weapons.
  • Quiet, reverent place. In good & clean condition when we were there. Information was also provided for adding a veteran's name to the memorial.
