Honoring Those Who Serve and Sacrifice for Us: The Las Vegas Veterans Memorial – A National Tribute

Nevada contains the largest veteran population of any state in the union and until recently, has no major monuments honoring their service and sacrifice. GRIDWORX is proud to have supplied the Grid and Engineering to make this project possible

Ten ghostlike, silver figures from past conflicts stand in a quiet semi-circle, gazing towards the center of the memorial plaza. Here, four modern-day bronze figures represent the creation of the next generation of veterans who will soon stand alongside those from the past. Set against a backdrop of engraved monolithic granite walls, this memorial will be highly experiential and interactive. Breaking with the current trend to focus solely on the lost, this monument is intended to honor the lost but also those who survived the experience and their loved ones who also make enormous and often overlooked sacrifices.

“A reminder that we will forever honor the proud principles upon which our nation was founded, and that we will never forget the spirit and heroism of those who have, and will, answer the call of duty.” These words describe the Las Vegas Veterans Memorial – A National Tribute on the grounds of the Grant Sawyer Building on Washington Avenue.
