The Veterans Plaza of Northern Colorado
The Veterans Plaza is a unique, public venue that honors and pays tribute to our military veterans; past, present, and future. The plaza features:
- Paved walking paths, native rock, shade trees, and an amphitheater with a 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 veterans.
Nominating a Veteran
Any veteran, living or deceased, and any active duty serviceman or woman can have their name listed at the Plaza at no charge.
