Marker 1:
The Big Pine Veterans Memorial was established by the Big Pine Civic Club in the year 2000 to honor all veterans of the Owens Valley. The 80-foot tall pole proudly displays the "Stars and Stripes" with the California State flag and the POW/MIA flag bordering either side. The Veterans Memorial stands in tribute to those who have made sacrifices to ensure our freedom and to remind visitors of our great American heritage.
Donations are used to repair the flags when damaged by wind or to replace the flags when necessary. Please help keep our flags flying!


Marker 2:
This memorial is dedicated to honor
the men and women of our Armed Forces
for their unconditional sacrifice and
dedication to this great nation.

Thank you for our freedom

God Bless You
