Local veterans and volunteers established a nonprofit in 2018 with one project in mind—building a permanent veterans tribute in the city they call home. The nonprofit, Bloomington Remembers Veterans, has since worked closely with the City planning for a future memorial on the grounds of Civic Plaza. The group chose a design by Leo A. Daly to be constructed on the east lawn of Civic Plaza. The design was approved by City Council in November.
Bloomington Remembers Veterans is dedicated to the mission of honoring and recognizing all veterans, educating the public as to why wars were fought, and showing why we should continue to honor these heroes for the freedoms we enjoy.
Community support will be critical in making this project come to fruition. Learn more about donating or volunteering with the project at bloomingtonveteransmemorial.org.
