Anthem Veterans Memorial
This is the Veteran's Memorial in Anthem, Arizona. At precisely 11:11 a.m. each Veterans Day (Nov 11) the sun's rays pass through the ellipses of the FIVE Armed Services pillars to form a solar spotlight on the glass mosaic of The Great Seal of the United States. The FIVE pillars represent the unity of the FIVE branches of the United States military serving steadfast together. Staggered in size with their appropriate military seal placements on each pillar, the pillars are arranged in Department of Defense order of precedence.
The brick pavers within the Circle of Honor are inscribed with the names of U.S. servicemen and women, symbolizing the support for the Armed Forces. The pavers are red, the pillars are white, and the sky is blue to represent America's flag. The circle, flanked by two "Soldier Rows," represents an unbreakable border.
