The memorial honors Trussville veterans of all wars with their names on five granite tablets. Each of the five sides of the monument's 30-foot tower holds a tablet listing military veterans from the Trussville area from the War of 1812 until the present. The tower is surrounded by a circular sandstone wall that serves as a bench. Flagpoles surround the monument with lighting in the evening to create an impressive view of the tower.
