Construction on this memorial began in 2006, as did the work to create five Soldier statues representative of each of the major conflicts that Fort McCoy had been involved with to that point in time: i.e., World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the war on terrorism. The formal dedication of Veterans Memorial Plaza was June 13, 2009, the date of Fort McCoy's 100th anniversary. (Submitted on March 20, 2019, by Keith L of Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin.)
