Across the country and around the world, U.S. war, military and veterans memorials stand to honor those who served in uniform and the battles they fought to protect our nation’s freedoms. The American Legion is now establishing a database to identify the locations, document histories and share photographs of our nation’s monuments and memorials to those who have served.
Key points for each submission include:
- A photo or photos (required), easily taken with a smart phone (no persons shall be in the photos)
- Location of the memorial, mapped if possible
- Purpose of the memorial, such as who it honors and why, in just a sentence or two
- Date of the memorial’s installation and who originally installed it
- A brief assessment of its condition today
To upload text or photos, simply click on "Add a Memorial" and follow the instructions. Submissions will be be displayed after review. For support, concerns, questions, please contact us.
* If your location is not listed, it is because no memorials have been submitted in that location.
