Veteran’s Day 2014: New Monument to American Women Veterans

America’s newest Women’s Veteran Monument recognizing their past, present and future service will be dedicated at 11 a.m. on Veterans Day, at Patriot Park, located in Del City, Oklahoma. Patriot Park has been the site of several veterans’ memorials and monuments since 1995. It is also the site for a Veterans Day ceremony each year on the east lawn of the Del City Community Center.
University of Central Oklahoma graduate Joel Randell’s sculptures make up the largest bronze women’s veteran monument in America. With seven statues, it is the first to be inclusive in that it depicts women from all five branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and National Guard and Reserves.
