Completion in near! With four of the five paintings complete (Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard), the Air Force painting will round out the monument in 2019. Each of the 8 feet by 10 feet oil paintings pays tribute to the men and women of the all five branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and are installed in the Committal Hall at the Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery north of Little Falls.
The paintings tell the story of each branch and commemorate the sacrifices of all who served. Besides a memorial to our nation's military men and women, the paintings are educational tools to help future generations understand the vital role our military plays in maintaining our freedom and democracy.
Millions of men and women have served. Many were wounded in battle. Many died to keep us free. Thank you for remembering them with your gift to complete this monument. To learn more, click here.
