Connecticut Veterans Memorial West Hartford
The Connecticut Veterans Memorial was commisioned by the Town Council of West Hartford in June 2001. This memorial honors West Hartford men and women who gave their lives during war.
The black granite Wall of Peace is engraved with the names of local fallen heroes. The spiraling Wall of Peace is broken each time the United States entered war.
The Walk of Remembrance, encircling the Wall of Peace, contains the names of men and women from across the country who served in our armed forces. A timeline of events, significant to West Hartford, is found along the outer edge.
A walk through this memorial is a walk through history.
In the center of the memorial is the Court of Honor. On dedication day, May 21, 2006, waters from the seven oceans and soils from battlefields, cemeteries, and prisoner of war camps from throughout the world, were folded into West Hartford earth.
In The Name Of Peace
