Directions: The Veterans Memorial Wall is located just inside the entrance to the Rio Vista Park to your left.
Historical Significance: The Rio Vista Park is dedicated to all who have served in conflicts starting from the Revolutionary War to current day. There is a Vietnam Era Huey helicopter on display, pillars and flags. The Veterans Memorial Wall is 88' long by 4' high black granite with etchings of various battles and events in our country’s history. The wall also features bronze emblems of the five branches of the armed forces, a U.S. seal and an excerpt from President Kennedy's 1961 inaugural address. “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”-President John F. Kennedy.
Agua Fria Chapter and Regent Dr. Barbara Littlefield acknowledge the Veterans Memorial Wall with the Bonhomme Richard vs HMS Serapis marker of September 23, 1779, sponsorship.
