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.

Great place to check out. It's a memorial to all the veterans from different wars. Bigger than life statues. Free parking.

This is an amazing tribute to all of our past and current military. It is a wide open area with granite walls that have quotes engraved on them. Also many sculptures depicting the branches of the armed forces. It is located in front of the Grant Sawyer state building, and right across the street from the Old Mormon Fort.

I make a point of paying respects at the local veterans' memorials when visiting the USA and this is truly an outstanding tribute. The images portrayed in the statues are backed up by significant quotes from history. I visited on a Sunday, which seemed apt, and had the place to myself.

Tribute to the effort of the men and women and their sacrifice on our behalf. Down the street from the Mormon Fort, turn left at the campus.

I came across this memorial by accident when looking on Trip Advisor and decided to pay it a visit whilst in town. The memorial is quite a good size and is laid out really nicely. It consists of a collection of granite walls inscribed with quotes about conflict, courage, sacrifice, gratitude, etc. which surround a collection of details statues of soldiers through the ages from the Revolutionary War up to today and the War On Terror. There is also a statue dedicated to the families that wait whilst their loved ones are away fighting for their liberty and freedom... Well worth a visit.
