History of the Memorial Honoring our nation's veterans through a permanent memorial had been a longtime goal of several Coralville residents. The Veterans Memorial Campaign was formed as a community project to raise funds to build a Veterans Memorial in Coralville.
Community Donations The campaign received assistance and in-kind donations from design, engineering, and construction professionals to envision and do the initial foundation work on a beautiful, high-quality memorial. The memorial foundations and basic services were constructed in 2020. The front sign wall and plaza spaces were completed in 2021.
Veterans Memorial Committee Led initially by the late longtime Mayor Jim Fausett, the campaign committee includes Coralville business and civic leaders, and veterans, including American Legion members.
