moreOwner description: Come for a serene visit, walk hallowed ground, and leave inspired. We invite you to visit the Center for American Values, located on the Historic Pueblo Riverwalk in Pueblo, Colorado. Pueblo is the “Home of Heroes” and proud host of the 2017 Medal of Honor Convention. The Center is open daily from 10:00am to 4:00pm and is free. The Center is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization formed in 2010 for charitable and educational purposes. The Center’s visionary and Co-founder is Pueblo native, and Medal of Honor recipient Drew Dix. Along with its education focus, the Center hosts the “Portraits of Valor” gallery, an extraordinary collection of more than 150 portraits of our countries living Medal of Honor Recipients. The exhibit is one of two permanent displays in the country; the other is displayed in the Pentagon. The exhibit is a powerful example of the self-sacrifice of ordinary individuals who have served in harm’s way to protect the freedoms we all enjoy. Some guests choose to sit and reflect at the immense power of the portraits while others enjoy reading the inspiring quotes that accompany each portrait. The Center also includes a World Trade Center (WTC) Steel Memorial located at the Center’s entrance. In 2012 members of the New York City Fire Department visited the Center to dedicate the WTC Steel Memorial. Visitors are reminded of how vital the Center’s core values of honor, integrity and patriotism are to the freedoms we enjoy and to the future of our great country.
