McAllen, Texas is the home of a new very large war memorial to honor all those who have served in America’s wars of the 20th and 21st century. The memorial continues to grow and will eventually have a large center star-shaped building that rises to the “American Spire of Honor”. Currently there are a number of courtyards composed many polished black granite memorials that tell the stories of the wars from World War I to the present and provide a list of names of those from Texas who gave their lives. There are also two special sections that honor those Texans who have been awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor and a special focus on Hispanics who have been awarded the Medal of Honor. There are also individual memorials honoring Women in the Service and particular units. The entire circular complex is surrounded by American flags on pedestals that are donated by groups or individuals to honor specific individuals or units.
