Veterans Memorial Wall

Description written by:  John Kane, Architekton
The city of Peoria Veterans Memorial pays tribute to the past, present and future veterans and their families for the sacrifices they have made to protect our country, ideals and virtues.

The linear configuration of the memorial represents a time line progressing through the history of our country and projecting into the future.  It begins with the flags located on axis with the pedestrian bridge and the public lobby of the recreation center.

The bridge has been designed not just as a path, but also as a gathering space for ceremonial events that may occur at the memorial.

Slide Show of Veterans Memorial Wall 

The stone clad wall that runs the length of the memorial embodies the past, a history frozen in time.

The graphics that will be etched into the surface will pay tribute not to the battles, but to the individuals that have served our country.

The path represents the present.  Its story is about those who currently are serving our country at home and abroad.

The lake flows with water, a symbol of life.  It represents our future constantly flowing and providing the memorial with the tranquil ambient sound of life.

At the end of the monument, a small gathering area provides shade and seating for quiet reflection.

The message is to every man and woman who have served in the armed forces that we owe our thanks for protecting our families and our country.  The story will be told through graphics and narrative that will be etched and or embedded into the surfaces of the monument.

Wall Contributions
It is the intent and desire of the city of Peoria to partner with recognized service organizations to make the memorial come to life.  The eighty-eight foot long black granite wall gives special recognition to the current five branches of the armed forces: Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard.  The United States Great Seal is boldly represented on the first eight foot panel section along with the five service branches and a special tribute that states:

“This memorial is dedicated by the city of Peoria to all of those who have served and are serving our country in the defense of freedom.”

An inscription through the remaining eighty feet wall section bares the saying:

“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and success of freedom.” John F. Kennedy, 1961 Inagural Address.

Sponsorship
The city of Peoria Veterans Memorial Wall is a collection of history and remembrance of contributions made by men and women who have served their country.  Throughout the past 250 years of history in the United States, there have been eleven major wars ranging from the American Revolution to the Global War on Terrorism.  A historian from Arizona State University was consulted by the city and members of the Veterans Memorial Board to identify noted events and battles that the United States of America was engaged in during each of these wars.  These events will be etched on the Memorial Wall with your contribution.  Each sponsor will be acknowledged by having the service organization’s name etched on the wall panel.
