The memorial will be placed on the eastern slope of the park’s main plaza and is paid for by the Veterans Park Maintenance Fund. The installation has been donated by Barnhart-Reese Construction.

The Veterans Park, located at 14135 Midland Road, serves as a permanent tribute to the past, present, and future veterans of the United States Military who have provided unselfish and honorable service to this country.
