Long Description:
This Veterans monument sits at the northeast corner of 1400 West 12800 South in Riverton, Utah. On the circumference of the monument are flags and markers for each of the Branches of the Armed Services. Sculpted into the concrete in the center of the monument is a large Army Good Conduct Medal, colored to match the actual Medal. At the head of this Medal is a bronze statue of a Soldier, with a large four-sided granite marker underneath. One of the sides reads:

May we never forget
The mothers who gave their sons freely

May we never forget
The fathers who never saw their children

May we never forget
The sons and daughters who gave up their lives

May we never forget
All men and women who served honorably

May we never forget
The price we've all paid for freedom
