Inscription.  The American Veterans Traveling Tribute Vietnam Wall was brought to this site in August of 2016. It was through the hard work and dedication of many volunteers that made this event possible. The black granite monument to commemorate the Honor, Respect, Remember Event was dedicated in August of 2017.

At the same time the new veteran's area was dedicated as the U.S. Army Ranger Sgt. Joshua P. Rodgers Veterans Field. Sgt. Rodgers was the first veteran to be laid to rest in this area.
