Gold Star Families Memorial Monument

Gold Star Families Memorial Monument

In tribute to our veterans’ service and sacrifice, and in honor of families who have lost a loved one serving in the Armed Forces of the United States, we kindly thank the Lincoln Community Foundation for the opportunity to thoughtfully design a memorial monument dedicated to Nebraska Gold Star Families. The monument, located in Antelope Park – Lincoln, Nebraska, honors our fallen military who made the ultimate sacrifice and the Gold Star Families who continue to endure their loss.

The first panel depicts Homeland with the iconic image of the Nebraska State Capitol, the second panel portrays Family with members reuniting after a tour of duty, and the third indicates Patriots who volunteer in the military to protect and give us freedom. The cutout silhouette in the fourth panel represents the missing family member who made the ultimate Sacrifice serving in the Armed Forces. The monument expresses Nebraska’s gratitude for the sacrifice of loved ones who gave their lives to preserve our rights and liberties, and was dedicated in 2017, the 150th anniversary of Nebraska Statehood.

With gratitude toward all veterans and their families, thank you for preserving our freedom.
