The next memorial currently being planned for Veteran’s Memorial Park will be different from any other featured on its grounds. While other memorials represent the country’s bygone battles, this one will stand for a conflict still ongoing. While the others honor those who have fallen, this one will also look to the future, waiting to honor those who will fall in the days to come.

The thought of a burning American flag tends to evoke a visceral feeling in many people. The scene is upsetting, tainted with disrespect for the United States and those that serve to defend her. But that will not be the case when local Boy Scouts begin burning American flags at the Veterans Memorial Park on Memorial Day. On that occasion, the fires will be lit with honor as the youth properly retire worn flags from throughout the area.

Artist Randy New remembers the moment of crystallization, the moment his first sculpture for the Veterans Memorial Park came to life. He was visiting the park with his children, brainstorming concepts for what would become the Monument to Children.

As a young girl, Jill Hubbs knew exactly who her dad was. And what he did. And what that meant.
