Outside the National Veterans Memorial and Museum lies a 2.5 – acre Memorial Grove, designed for contemplation and reflection before visitors return to their everyday lives. A grove of trees, a water feature and memorial wall together create a cohesive space for remembrance, inspiration, and the recognition of service. A grove of American Elms, a tree that has sheltered Veterans and their families since colonial times, provides a place for rest and relaxation. The limestone wall references regional geology and symbolizes our strength as a nation as best exemplified by the teamwork of our armed forces and the motto, E Pluribus Unum, “From many, one.” The pool and cascades highlight water considered an elemental source of life and healing by all peoples throughout time.
