Beneath the flags of Veterans Park, located across Midland Road from Old Poway Park, those who have served in the United States military are honored and remembered.
I visited Veterans Park during my most recent walk in Poway. I found many tributes to those who sacrificed.
I saw plaques, engraved bricks in a Wall of Honor, and small monuments filled with memory.
There’s a bronze Battlefield Cross and a large Meneely Bell.
Six stations near the center of the Veterans Park circle feature artwork and audio recordings. The history of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine is told.
There’s a cannon, an anchor, and other artifacts from war, and words of pain, and courage, and gratitude for freedom. And many names.
