The Rogers County Courthouse is located at 200 S. Lynn Riggs Blvd. The courthouse faces west and on the large concrete patio in front of the building, this memorial was placed by VFW Post 1976. It was originally dedicated on May 23, 1971 and re-dedicated on November 11, 2016 when this new courthouse building was erected.
