VETERANS MEMORIAL IN VALLEY VIEW CEMETERY

At the center of this memorial is a beautiful, white statue of a woman waiting for her husband to come back from the war. This statue is in memory of the unknown heroes from 1861-1898. The statue, erected in 1900, stands in front of the commonly known Veteran’s Prayer. The woman’s statue faces a field of white crosses placed on the grounds.

This memorial, located in the Valley View Cemetery, displays five granite pillars honoring the branches of service, with war images etched into the backside of the monuments. This memorial, dedicated to all past, present and future men and women of the armed forces, also hosts several granite pillars with names of the fallen from various wars.
