Our nation’s veterans have served and protected the United States for over 230 years. They have made sacrifices small and large, all to ensure the freedom of this great nation.
A fitting and proper tribute within the City of Thornton is a small way of showing our appreciation for their service. Privately funded and created, the Thornton Veterans Memorial Foundation has endeavored to make this memorial a reality for the city, its citizens and all veterans.
It took a number of years for the memorial to take shape and to finally rise from the ground but against all odds it did. As extraordinary as the memorial may be, the work is not yet done.
