The memorial was created by the Veterans Council of Northwest Arkansas.
It is located in a setting where visitors can be reminded of the sacrifices
made by so many to create and preserve the freedoms we enjoy today.
The Bella Vista Garden Club plants and maintains several
flower beds in front of the memorial.
A Special Planting Day
We were honored when both Gene Roy, President of the Veterans Council of Northwest Arkansas and Gary Wellesley, State Commander of the Arkansas VFW, came to meet and thank the Veterans Wall of Honor Committee members and enjoy our Spring Planting (see photo below). AJ Morris, Jr. is the new Chairman taking over the reins from Marilyn Russell at the Spring Luncheon in June 2014.
