The park will honor all U.S. Veterans, beginning with the Revolutionary War to the present War on Terror, including the Middle East and Caribbean Regions Conflicts. There will be a monument dedicated to all Veterans, 12 individual monuments, one for each war or conflict, 6 bronze plaques and flags representing each branch of the military, a Walk of Honor, The POW/MIA chair and a monument to honor our 4 legged Veterans as they served too.

Visit the Desoto Veterans Park, walk through the history of our country, and honor the Veterans that fought to preserve our freedoms.

These are just a few of the proposed monuments for the Park:

Bricks may be purchased to honor any U.S. Veteran  (both past and presently serving) for any war or conflict, regardless of where they are from, for $125.00.  These bricks will border the Walk of Honor across the top of the levee at the north end of the pond.
