Texas World War II Memorial, Austin, TX (12-13-2018)

This large monument on the grounds of the State Capitol pays tribute to those who fought in World War Two. It is a 17 foot tall granite column with a bronze oak and wheat wreath that is a replication of the Texas pillar at the World War II Memorial on the National Mall in Washington D.C. It reads…

This Memorial honors the 830,000 Texans who served in the Armed Forces of the United States during World War II, the more than 22,000 who gave their lives and the millions who supported the war effort from home. The Memorial honors the spirit, sacrifice and commitment of Texans to the common defense of our nation and to the broader causes of peace and freedom throughout the world. It serves as an inspiration to future generations of Texans, deepening their appreciation of what the World War II generation both sacrificed and accomplished in protecting freedom and democracy.
