TERRA was retained for the design and construction of a fitting memorial to honor Peoria County’s veterans of the Korean War to the present, as well as any possible future conflicts. This memorial will honor all Peoria County Veterans who have served in the U.S. military during the Korean War, Vietnam War, Grenada, Panama, Persian Gulf, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan and the War on Terrorism. In addition, this memorial will honor the 106 Peoria County veterans who lost their lives in Korea and Vietnam by listing their names on the memorial panels. The design is to fit into the existing landscape and compliment the surrounding area. It is to be a place for visitors to reflect and reconnect with history. It will also provide a quiet place of peace and serenity offering a fitting tribute to the citizens of Peoria we wish to honor.
