1. Dearborn War Memorial
Inscription.  The focal point of Veterans Plaza is the Dearborn War Memorial, which was dedicated on Veterans Day, November 11, 1981.

The Memorial has a unique and symbolic "Flag in the Ground” design. Its "field” is a 24-square foot raised brick podium. Flag "stripes” extend horizontally from the "field."

The permanent, living Memorial, long a dream of the Allied War Veterans Council of Dearborn, replaced the former War Memorial Board which had to be removed in 1980 as part of Town Hall Addition construction project.
 
Erected 1981 by Allied War Veterans Council of Dearborn.
