Veterans Wall of Honor Bella Vista, Arkansas

The Veterans Council of Northwest Arkansas, a 501(c)(3) organization, was formed in 2001 with the mission of honoring America’s veterans, who have contributed so much to securing the freedoms we enjoy today. The Veterans Council is responsible—through generous donations—for the construction of the Veterans Wall of Honor in Bella Vista.

       As visitors pass through the massive arch of the Veterans Wall of Honor, they will see the historic timeline, which chronicles significant military events from the Revolutionary War to the War on Terrorism, including battles and times of peace. The outer facing wall of the circular monument displays 63 bronze plaques depicting elements of the timeline composed of maps, images and text. Twenty seven plaques with the names of those American presidents who served in the military can be found at the monument

On the outer perimeter, 18 historical flags and the national colors proudly fly in honor of all veterans. Each historical flag has flown over some portion of our nation. As visitors enter the monument’s interior, they will notice a magnificent fountain complete with fiber-optic lighting—a donor gift—prominently positioned inthe center. Surrounding the fountain are beautiful plantings to symbolize the life of our nation that our veterans have helped preserve. Visitors can observe the vast array of more than 4,500 granite honoree tablets that veterans and their families have purchased to make this project possible. The east wall contains the preamble to the U.S. Constitution supported symbolically by the various armed services and represented by their logos.

All who serve sacrifice. Some who serve sacrifice all.
