We understand Las Vegas is not just an international tourist destination; southern Nevada is also the site of several strategic and historic military installations, home to hundreds of thousands of military veterans, and a place where millions more have passed through, both on assignment and for leisure. The Las Vegas Veterans Memorial is a transcendent and profound statement, designed on a world-class scale, to recognize and commemorate the commitment, dedication and sacrifices made by America’s veterans throughout our history, both in conflict and in peacetime. The Memorial will be a beacon of pride to all who visit and will foster common understanding and remembrance of the price that freedom bears and of the courage of those who have shouldered that cost.
The Las Vegas Veterans Memorial (LVVM) will provide a special, venerable site where veterans, family members, friends and the world community can reflect, with admiration and respect, on the sacrifices and achievements for all who have served and will serve in our nation’s military. The memorial is a reminder to all that we shall forever honor the proud principles upon which our nation was founded, and that we shall never forget the heroism and the spirit of those who made them possible and who will preserve them long into the future.
Located near the heart of the Las Vegas Cultural Corridor, the Las Vegas Veterans Memorial, created by American Shooters, Inc., a veteran-operated business in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Veterans Memorial board is committed to creating a world-class veterans memorial to honor the men and women who have served the United States of America in conflicts that have shaped our nation. The non-profit organization has worked in close collaboration with the City of Las Vegas, local veteran’s organizations and the Las Vegas Arts Commission to make the memorial a reality.
The project is scheduled to be complete and open to the public in the summer of 2014. Upon completion of construction, the memorial will be donated to the City of Las Vegas.
