The Path of Honor - Wind River Veterans Memorial is a tribute to all military service members who live within the boundaries of the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming. With deep gratitude and thanks to our donors, The Path of Honor is the realization of a dream nearly a decade in the making. The Path of Honor is a memorial where our veterans can come together to be recognized and honored, and where many generations – at home and afar – can learn that service is honorable and noble – and that we are all in this together.
Visitors will enter the garden from the East, seeing the monuments silhouetted against the Wind River Mountains to the West. The path through the garden will include four stately stone sculptures. Native Plants will be scattered along the trail. As visitors walk forward, towards the mountains, they will pass the four unique monuments, each dedicated to a different military era. The path will guide them through the memories of World Wars I and II, then the Korean War, Vietnam, and finally the Post- Vietnam & Gulf War Era.
