California XXXIII



This beautiful Victorian influenced park lies in Santa Clarita, California.

It was conceived in 2000 and in 2017 another component was added so it is clearly an on-going, living tribute to all Veterans.



From the fountain, one walks down the central path past what are called story stations which give a brief history of a number of our nations battles.


 The one to Vietnam tells our story.


Many names from all eras are engraved on the bricks that  make of the walkways.

In 2017 a new Fallen Soldiers Memorial was added too the site. It lists all those lost from the Santa Clarita Valley from World War II to the present.



Called the Veterans Historical Plaza it is located 24275 Walnut Street and there is parking at the site.

Next time, on the 21st, we will venture back to Delaware, so join me there, as always, at 9:00am.

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