About the Memorial

Giving back to our local veterans in the Lake Orion area.

In Their Honor

All of the work we do is dedicated to those from the Orion, Michigan community who bravely served this country. It’s our goal to bring awareness to veterans living in our community, and to raise them up as a whole. Our efforts all bring financial and emotional aid to veterans—while thanking them for their service.

This memorial is not about war, it’s about people and paying tribute to all the military service personnel who honorably served their country. We don’t glorify war, we glorify the spirit of the men and women that fought for this great country. We embrace all veterans and their family members in tribute.

Our History

In June of 1994, on the 50th anniversary of D-Day, a group of interested citizens met at Children’s Park in the Village of Lake Orion and announced their plan to create the Memorial. A site search for a home for the Memorial was undertaken along with the task of raising funds to start construction. The construction consisted of several phases over 20 years.

Each phase and its accomplishments have been made a reality by the generous monetary donations and gifts in kind by patriotic members of the community, and even those outside our community, with the same patriotic love for our military and country. The Memorial honors the more than one million men and women who lost their lives defending America from the Revolution to the now global war on terrorism.
