New Mexico X

Truth or Consequences may be best know for the TV game show of the same name, but it, also, should be known for the great Veterans Memorial Park and the Hamilton Museum that are located in the town on the same site.

This park has much to offer as it is more of a multi-war park that attempts to tell our history as one walks its paths.

Vietnam is prominent here, with a half scale replica of The Wall. It is one of the retired Traveling Walls that found its final home on the site.

 These markers are along the walkways and speak to our wars and the people who served in them.

This guy is called the Guardian of the Park.

There is just too much here to include in one post, so I will return at some time in the future to share more of what is in the park and what is in the museum.

The Park and Museum may be reached at;

996 S. Broadway
Truth or Consequences, NM 87901
Phone: (575) 894-7640

It is 154 miles south of Albuquerque on Rte. 25.

Next time, on the 2nd of February will will return to New York, so join me there, as always, at 9:00am.

To see additional memorials from New Mexico, or any other state, click the state name on the left side of this page.
