Inscription. Every year on Veterans Day, the five pillars of the Memorial will align perfectly to cast one, long shadow across the circle of pavers at precisely 11:11 a.m. At the exact same time, the sunlight projecting through the elliptical openings in the pillars will pour through and perfectly encompass and illuminate the mosaic of the Great Seal of the United States, forever reminding us of the courageous U.S. Military veterans who have served and sacrificed to protect our nation.
 
Erected 2011 by The Anthem Community Council, Inc and the Arizona Historical Society.
