This granite memorial that stands at the entrance to the Uvalde Memorial Park was the original war memorial in Uvalde and was built to honor those who lost their lives in World War I. Gold Star Mothers raised the original funds and the memorial was dedicated in 1927 with a bronze plaque listing the names. Over the years additional plaques were added to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. In 2006 a new monument was created that would be more accessible and to which names from the conflicts of the 21st century could be added. The original memorial was left to remind citizens of the more than century long sacrifices made by the community to America’s wars.
