Family oriented site to honor all veterans of any time period. Nebraska congressional Medal of Honor recipients are highlighted by fivestars on their bricks.

They were doing some construction while we were there, so we could not really go into it. We look around it though.

A welcome surprise awaits those wishing to pay honor to those who served our country. All forces are represented here. If you're in North Platte, take a few moments to honor those who fought and died for our freedom.
