Create an itinerary including The Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial
The first memorial constructed was located in St Anne, IL, the hometown of Captain Ryan A. Beaupre, one of Illinois' first casualties in the war against terror. In early 2004, the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial was built featuring the names of all fallen soldiers resulted from the Middle East conflicts since 1967. On June 19, 2004, the wall was dedicated commemorating the servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.

The Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial was built with donated material and labor. The founders, Tony Cutrano and Jerry Kuczera spearheaded this project to ensure that those sacrificing their lives for our freedom were given the proper recognition for the selfless service to our great country.

  • Stunning memorial along the Illinois River. There is also a block from 9/11 Pentagon. Plenty of parking.

  • Stunning and beautiful as well as humbling. I personally have names on the wall and have helped build it to the point it is now. I'm absolutely in love with this piece of ground and visit every chance i get as well as the museum
  • A wonderful Tribute to the lives lost in the Middle East Conflicts. A beautiful background of running water. Name etching papers and pencils. Closed museum still due to Covid.
