Pictured above is a photo of the Veterans Memorial.  There is also a bronze dedication plaque.

Sculptor Ron Petitt was commissioned to create a veterans memorial that will honor all veterans of all generations. The unique design incorporates a 6' black granite star topped with a black granite column with five one-half life size bronze sculptures that represent both male and female members of the different branches of service in their dress uniforms. Located above each figure is a bronze plaque with the service emblem for each branch of service. Dedication of the memorial was held November 11, 2009. 

The Veterans Memorial project was sponsored by The Southeast Texas Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 292, with support from the Jefferson County Commissioners Court and the Ben J. Rogers Regional Visitors Center.

On Veterans Day 2007, a press conference was held at The Ben J. Rogers Regional Visitor Center to unveil the model design for the Veterans Memorial. The above photo shows artist Ron Petitt and Jefferson County Precinct 4 Commissioner "Bo" Alfred (bottom row, second from left) posing with veterans and members of VVA Chapter 292. The Veterans Memorial is located outside the Ben J. Rogers Regional Visitor Center at 5055 IH-10 South.
