Regarding Jefferson County War Memorial. This memorial is part of a veterans park that also contains a nearby sculpture of a soldier who died in Iraq (Thomas Tucker). There are also a number of dedicated benches that were sponsored by each branch of the U.S. military. Finally, dedicated bricks inlaid around the sculpture and leading to another brick-inlaid path that represents the Deschutes River is noticeable near this war memorial. The city hall/police station was dedicated in 2012, so this war memorial hasn't been here for very long.
