A beautiful riverfront park in Bullhead City is the setting for the Arizona Veterans Memorial, dedicated in the memory of more than 3,000 military men and women from the State of Arizona who were killed during wars and armed conflicts over the past 100 years. The largest portion of the memorial overlooks the Colorado River and contains a line of giant flagpoles paralleling a curved wall standing nine feet high and 40 feet wide. Displayed here are bronze plaques engraved with the names of each of the service men and women who died defending our nation. On each side of the memorial wall are giant bronze eagles surrounded by 50 stars representing the 50 states.
The Arizona Veterans Memorial Park also contains a pyramid-shaped stone memorial honoring the U.S.S. Arizona, which was destroyed in the attack on Pearl Harbor that marked America’s entry into World War II. The memorial park is open year-round and admission is free.
From USA Today: "The Arizona Veterans Memorial is a destination in itself. The north part is on Rio Grande Road and has a set of panels with the names of all Arizonians killed in a century of conflicts. The south part has columns and an eternal flame, with green space nearby. A visit provides both contemplation and a history lesson."
