History of the Memorial
Honoring our nation's veterans through a permanent memorial had been a longtime goal of several Coralville residents. The Veterans Memorial Campaign was formed as a community project to raise funds to build a Veterans Memorial in Coralville.
The campaign received assistance and in-kind donations from design, engineering, and construction professionals to envision and do the initial foundation work on a beautiful, high-quality memorial. The memorial foundations and basic services were constructed in 2020. The front sign wall and plaza spaces were completed in 2021.
