Colorado Freedom Memorial Dedicated Over the Weekend
As we remembered those that have served over the Memorial Day Weekend, a very special dedication was made in Colorado! 13 years in-the-making, the Colorado Freedom Memorial located near Springhill Golf Course on a four-acre parcel near Buckley Air Force Base in Springhill Community Park at 756 Telluride Street in Aurora, Colorado, was officially dedicated to honor those that have served.

About the Colorado Freedom Memorial:
[ cfmf.net ]
The Colorado Freedom Memorial is made of glass and stands 12 feet tall and 95 feet long. It's base is tiled in granite.
The panels of glass that make up the memorial lean forward and back, representative of men falling in action. A trough of water runs in front of the memorial, representative of the oceans that separate Colorado from the fields of battle.
Nearly 6000 names appear on the wall. They are grouped by war, but names will not be alphabetically listed. This will allow for additions as they are discovered.
How did this get started? Denver radio host, Rick Crandall, KEZW's Station Manager and Breakfast Club Host started working on this idea in 2000 and on Sunday, it all became reality!
Thank you, Rick!
