I am an American Warrior
fighting in the forces, which guard my country and our way of life. Welcome to your Patriots Walkway. You’re invited to take a short walk through our American military history from the Revolutionary War through today’s conflicts. Did you know our brave men and women have fought in over 30 wars and combat operations? Our history is one filled with stories of my brothers and sisters who have placed duty first, demonstrated courage and made extraordinary sacrifices while defending our Nation and the cause of freedom for over 200 years. Many of my battles buddies have sacrificed more than 3,000,000 have died or been wounded in battle securing your freedom since we declared our independence from England. Perhaps you recall Patrick Henry’s famous proclamation at the start of the War of Independence, “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death.” These words capture my creed, and spirit embodied in all of us who have and will take up arms for our country. Ours is an unfailing spirit forever displayed since we first fired our weapons in 1775, and is ever-present on today’s battlefields.

Erected 2013.
