The Colorado Freedom Memorial

The Colorado Freedom Memorial

"Time will not dim the glory of their deeds."
— General of the Armies, John J. Pershing

But time does dim the memory of the men and women who gave their lives defending freedom. That's why the Colorado Freedom Memorial is so important. It insures future generations will know the price paid for their freedom and it gives families and comrades of the fallen the knowledge we have not forgotten!

The Colorado Freedom Memorial at sunset The Colorado Freedom Memorial is located in Aurora, Colorado, near Buckley Air Force Base. On its glass panels are the names of nearly 6000 killed in action since we became a state. These heroes left the mountains of home to fight in places they'd never heard of, answering their nation's call to duty. Almost half of the men and women honored on the Memorial never returned home, their remains lost at sea, never recovered behind enemy lines, or buried in far away places. For families that never had a cemetery to visit, the Colorado Freedom Memorial becomes a place of grief and of healing.

In the 4 years since this monument was dedicated, thousands have come to visit, to shed tears, to reminisce, to pay tribute, to just sit and remember. Ceremonies have been held here, motorcycle rides have stopped here, Memorial services have been held here and respect has been paid here. The Colorado Freedom Memorial touches each visitor in a special way.

The Names...
Is this all of them? Is the Colorado Freedom Memorial 100% accurate? Sadly, the answer is no. It's the most accurate accounting of Colorado veterans killed in action that we know of, but we're certain there are more names to discover.
