Veterans Memorial, Oklahoma City

This memorial belongs to the State Capitol Park, arranged on the sector-shaped ground at the Oklahoma State Supreme Court. It was created as a tribute to the memory of those that fell in the First World War, the Second World War, the Korean and the Vietnam Wars. The bronze statue of larger-than-life sized military men on a meter- high pedestal introduces and dominates the memorial complex. Behind the statue there are four erected panels with dark plates depicting war scenes, Armed Forces and State flags, and a memorial shaft. The funds for the memorial were raised from around the nation and the land was donated by the State of Oklahoma. Oklahoma Veterans is a significant site that opened in 1986.
