Town of Tonawanda, NY

August 18, 2008

The design of this inspiring Veterans Memorial was developed as the perfect balance of art and monument, linking the site with other essential elements in the Town of Tonawanda. The Stars and Stripes, as well as the honored flags of the different branches of the United States military services, proudly flank the entry to a series of concentric circles. As the grade increases, the walkways lead to an elevated Wall of Honor surrounding a center sculpture by artist and Vietnam War veteran Ralph Sirianni. The project will have a lasting impact, fostering local, regional and national pride while serving as a visual reminder of the sacrifices of our Veterans.
