THE VETERANS PLAZA OF NORTHERN COLORADO
The Veterans Plaza is a unique, public venue that honors and pays tribute to all military men and women with ties to Northern Colorado. The plaza features:
- Paved walking paths, native rock, shade trees, and an amphitheater with performance stage.
- Flags representing America, Colorado and our country's military prisoners of war, and members killed in action or missing in action.
- A bronze statue of a soldier holding a young boy on his shoulder, showing him the promise of the future.
- A "Victory Garden".
- Stone walls embedded with large LCD monitors: one that scrolls names of veterans and the other allows visitors to search for information on specific veternans.
Nominating a Veteran
