Tucked away in College Station’s Veterans Park and Athletic Complex at 3101 Harvey Road is a hidden gem – a 12-acre site dedicated to veterans from our nation’s wars. The Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial includes life-sized statues, a Wall of Honor, interpretive panels and memorial sites.
Chartered in 2000 as a non-profit corporation, the Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial is supported by generous community residents, organizations, and partners, including Brazos County and the cities of Bryan and College Station. The Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial’s all-volunteer board of directors proudly contribute time and resources to salute our veterans. Their mission is to proactively pay tribute to veterans through an educational venue where future generations can learn that freedom comes with a heavy price.
Former President George H.W. Bush helped dedicate the Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial on Nov. 10, 2002. Bush said “The Brazos Valley community can stand proud. The names that mark the memorial showcase the sons and daughters who gave dedicated service to our nation so that future generations can share the freedoms we enjoy.
“Their task was great and their sacrifice even greater, but their legacy stands firm, and their memories burn bright.”
Bush later said the Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial is of similar quality to those on the famed National Mall in Washington, D.C.
