The Veteran’s Memorial Project was created to remember Willmar area men and women who have bravely served our country.
The refurbished memorial was completed in September 2021 and opened with a dedication ceremony on Saturday, Sept. 11th.
The memorial includes a plaza made of 796 memorial pavers, each one dedicated to a veteran, and eight stone memorial benches surrounding a granite monolith in the center of the plaza. The stone is carved with the likeness of the American flag and on each side there is a plaque representing one of the five traditional armed forces — Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy and Coast Guard.
The Flags of Honor has hiking/biking trails and picnic tables.
