I read about this in an American Legion Magazine, but no one knew where it was, not even the receptionist at a local American Legion hall. Today a happened to see it while visiting the Grant Sawyer Govt. building at 555 E. Washington Ave. The Memorial is a small park just to the side of the Gov. building. A nice curved pathway leads to a series of statues of soldiers all the way from the Revolutionary war to Desert Storm. Behind each are several huge granite walls bearing inscriptions of Presidents and scholars. Only 1/2 block square, it's not huge, but it is impressive, and well worth a visit. Of course, it's free.

We went to see the Las Vegas Veterans Memorial. We went on Nevada Day, which is a holiday in Nevada commemorating Nevada becoming part of the United States.

The Veterans Memorial is large size and has many different "statues" honoring the service and sacrifice of veterans and their families.

Its very nice and worth seeing to honor our veterans.

I was in the area and decided to check out four sites adjacent to one another: The Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort State Historic Park; Las Vegas Natural History Museum; Las Vegas Veterans Memorial; Cashman Field. Here is my review of the Las Vegas Veterans Memorial.

The Las Vegas Veterans Memorial was dedicated Friday, May 27, 2016. It's located on the grounds of / adjacent to the Grant Sawyer state government building. From what I understand, the entire project was privately funded.

When fully complete, the memorial will consist of a mall with 18 larger than life statues. There is at least one statue to represent each of the wars this country has endured.

I thought that as art, each of the statues was well done. The layout of the mall was good in communicating the message of the artist. As another commentator noted, the quality of this memorial is equal to those found in national capitals.

I would encourage a visit.

This is the type of memorial you would expect in Washington D.C.

We went with three generations and walked through the 18 larger than life statues.
What a tribute! Such respect, such honor to those who have given so much.

Do not miss this, take your friends, your family.

This is a small two acre lot adjacent to the government building (which provides the parking) and is easily ignored. Don't! This was a very moving experience with the sculptures and placements. For those who have served it is a visible reminder of those we served with, who preceded and succeeded us in the service of our country. There has been only one more moving experience, the cemetery on Omaha Beach in Normandy. Sorry it took me many years of living here to find it.

This veterans memorial is across the street from Cashman Field. A little bit south of downtown Las Vegas.

The memorial is visually stunning, representing each war the U.S has fought in.

Tips:
Lots of parking
There are a few benches in the shade.

This is an amazing undertaking for the artist and it is very well presented. Each war that the United States has waged is represented by a statue of a warrior from the time frame of the respective war. They are accurate regarding the gear and weapons they carry and each statue is an individual - not a generic face. My understanding is that the artist donated his works. There are no guided tours so you can spend as much time as you wish at the memorial. You can't help but have your heart touched by this display.

We drove around the veteran's park thinking I would find cemetery. We exited park and drove down road and found memorial. I pulled directly up to the Submarine portion. It is a beautiful place for reflecting on life. I had so many memories flooding my mind. God is graciousness. I served 24 years in Submarines. Words do not correctly describe the memorial. One stood out from others I have visited. It is merchant marine's service during WWII. My grandfather served in this service and escaped not one but two torpedoed boiler rooms. He did not talk about it until his 80s. Just sitting in the atmosphere of FREEDOM from live personal sacrifice may bring tears to your eyes. Their is a overwhelming peace that comes over you thinking about loved ones. I cannot explain it in words. You just have to go and experience it yourselves.
