Veterans Wall of Freedom

Frequently Asked Questions

As we get asked questions... we will write the questions and answers here!

We hope these answers help you! If you don't find the answer you're looking for, please contact us.

Can I still reserve a plaque?

Yes. Please complete and return the plaque reservation form along with $100 per plaque to the address on the form. The deadline for each round of plaque reservations is generally 30-45 days prior to the events. All reservations received by these dates will be unveiled on the following Memorial Day or Veterans Day.

When will the wall be built?

The Wall of Freedom was completed and dedicated on Veterans Day, November 11, 2016. Prior to that, the unveiling of the monument took place on November 11, 2015. Unveiling of the first class of veterans plaques was installed for Memorial Day 2016

How can I help?

You can help by donating your time, talent or treasure to the project.

Do I have to live in Grand Terrace to have a plaque?

No. We welcome and honor all Veterans. The location was chosen because Grand Terrace is centrally located in the Inland Empire, near the VA Hospital in Loma Linda as well as near March Air Reserve Base and the National Cemetery in Riverside.

I'm not a veteran but can I get a plaque for my Dad, brother, sister, uncle, etc.?

Yes, it would be an honor to have them on the Wall of Freedom.

What will it cost?

The project is estimated to have cost over $300,000, all of which came from monetary and in-kind donations from our generous sponsors. The sponsor page has a list of sponsorship levels but all donations are greatly appreciated for the maintenance of the monument.

What would you pay for freedom if I didn’t have it?

Because of the service and sacrifice of veterans, you do have freedom. Now, let us all join together, to honor them.
