20th Century Veterans Memorial

Bas relife muralThe busy crossroads of the Eisenhower Memorial Interstate System (I-80), and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Memorial Highway (Highway 83), is the appropriate location of the 20th Century Veterans Memorial.  The five major armed forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard) as well as the volunteers of the North Platte Canteen are memorialized by larger than life bronze statues.  The five major conflicts of the 20th century (World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam and Desert Storm) are depicted in a fifteen foot tall brick bas-relief mural.  The memorial features a Walk of Honor, lined by thousands of commemorative bricks showing the names of veterans who served at any time during the 20th century.
