all veteransThe All Veterans Memorial, constructed in 1991, includes a major walkway with individual monuments lining it. The Memorial itself consists of a circular walkway around the World War II era tank, with individual Memorials commemorating military actions of the United States Armed Forces. This memorial was the first in the nation to honor Desert Storm. A special Medal of Honor memorial for Sgt. Grant F. Timmerman, an Emporia native, is also located there. In the fall of 1999, a UH-1H Huey Helicopter was placed on the grounds of the memorial.
