The Veterans Memorial Wall is located at 1145 East Adams Street, adjacent to TIAA Bank Field in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. The quarter-million dollar monument was dedicated in November, 1995 and serves as a tribute to more than 1,700 Jacksonville area American war heroes. The outdoor memorial was promoted as “the largest of its kind” and “the only wall that honors Veterans from all six [service] branches” (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine). The Veterans Memorial is now the second largest memorial wall in the United States, second only to the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Washington, D.C. The 65 foot-long black granite monument contains the names of servicemen and women from World War I through the War on Terror. In front of the wall stands a torch with an eternal flame. The wall was rededicated on its 20 year anniversary in November, 2015.
