A Place To Honor And Remember Our Heroes

Active Military


First Responders

Healthcare Workers

Our Mission

The living Memorial will create a space in which we honor and celebrate our heroes while educating future generations about the meaning of service and sacrifice to our country. Young people can learn that liberty and safety are attained through selfless acts of kindness and valor. Families and friends who have suffered loss can visit a solemn place of remembrance.

Our Campaign Needs Patrons Like You

Presently, Arizona does not have an area dedicated to honoring our state’s heroes. Our veterans, current military, first responders, and healthcare workers answered our country’s call with service, bravery, and honor. This Memorial is a place for education, reflection, and celebration of the service, sacrifice, and honor that these brave men and women have given to our country.
