About Platteville Veterans Memorial

Dedicated in 2017, The Platteville Veterans Memorial proudly stands on the Eastern Plains of Northern Colorado just East of the town of Platteville.

Often described as one of "the nicest" Veterans Memorials in Colorado, this breathtaking memorial honors and remembers the selfless sacrifice of our Veterans.

Our Mission is to provide an accurate accounting of local Veterans by inclusion of their name on our Memorial Wall, to sponsor, host and participate in events and activities that promote the recognition of all United States military Veterans and to foster an understanding of and an appreciation for Freedom in future generations.

 Whether you are looking for a Veterans name on our wall, want to enjoy a quiet, reflective moment at our grotto, or are  attending one of our many yearly events, we welcome you to be a part of our mission.

  The Platteville Veterans Memorial is also made available for Memorial Services for any Honorably Discharged Military Veteran.  Please contact us for more information about our services.
