La Verne Veterans Memorial
The vision for the La Verne Veterans Memorial was to create a venue of respect, honor, and esteem for those fellow citizens of our community who have served and will serve in our nation’s armed forces. We envisioned a place where veterans could connect with one another, where their families and friends could pay tribute, and where each generation of the community could learn about the efforts and sacrifices of those who came before them and those who would follow.
The Veterans Memorial provides a tangible testament to the service and sacrifices made by veterans from the La Verne community. The memorial is located on the corner of Magnolia Street and Bonita Avenue in front of Veterans Hall. It features an obelisk with the names of the men and women from La Verne who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. It also features flags representing each branch of the military, park benches, and landscaping features.
We also welcome you to be part of our Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremonies held each year at the Memorial at 11:00 a.m. The ceremonies are sponsored by the City of La Verne and Veterans of Foreign War Post 12034 Band of Brothers. Please join us for these vents, enjoy the peaceful ambiance of the Memorial and join with your fellow patriots in paying tribute to our Veterans.
