AAA Editor Notes
Community Veterans Memorial is off I-80/94 exit Calumet Ave., then 2.4 mi. s. to 9710 Calumet Ave. The 6.5-acre park features life-size bronze statues and five memorial sites to the major wars of the 20th century with landscapes replicating the rough terrain of war-torn lands. Connecting the monuments are fact-filled pathways that serve as a historical timeline. Artifacts include a Huey helicopter, a replica of a P-51 Mustang fighter plane and personal items such as boots, guns and letters from the home front.
Each monument includes an audio recording about the conflicts represented.
