Overview
More
Community Veterans Memorial is a 6.5 acre park featuring bronze and granite sculptures, and life-size monuments to depict the major military conflicts that shaped the 20th Century. The memorial imparts a reflective and provocative vision for peace. From the trenches of World War I through the Pacific beaches and European battles of World War II, the extreme weather and combat conditions of Korea, the rugged brutal fire fights of Vietnam, and the sandy sea of Desert Storm, the memorial pays the highest tribute to all veterans. A commemorative brick pathway leads visitors on their journey through history. Individuals and groups are invited to take self-guided tours in which several stations provide pre-recorded information about the defining wars of the 20th Century. Guided tours are also available.

This memorial would be of interest to anyone who is interested in the history of the United States. It provides a time line along with information about the wars. There is a lot of reading, so take your time and enjoy the walk.

A very peaceful place honoring veterans from WW1&2, Korean & Vietnam wars. As you walk, the plaques tell the stories, while the bricks at your feet name the veterans who served, and in some cases, gave the ultimate sacrifice.

This is one of the few war memorials that not only honors veterans from all conflicts but provides a time line of other historical events. As you follow the path the years are noted on bricks with different events from that year highlighted on other...More

Walking through the exhibit with my daughter was moving and heart wrenching. A must see. Sitting at each exhibit, reading the information, imagining the time and place and what the soldiers endured... filled my heart with sadness and respect.

This is an excellent experience. It's bigger than we expected. We took some friends there from Florida and they were very impressed. Took me back to my tour in Viet Nam.

This should be visited by every veteran who passes through Northwest Indiana, preferably with family/friends as it can be overwhelming. A forgone conclusion is a visit to VFW Post 6448 in Dyer or American Legion Post 697 in Lansing but we managed to try a...More

This memorial gives you a very real picture of what our soldiers went through. It was a deeply emotional experience. There are special events held there on holidays worth attending.
