The Veteran's War Memorial of Texas was established to honor the 1.4 million Americans were killed or missing in action in all wars and conflicts of this nation.[1] The Memorial site is located on a 3.5-acre (14,000 m2) complex in McAllen, Texas at the intersection of 29th and Galveston Streets and is encircled by 5 war sites: World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, The Gulf War & All Wars.

The site has 160 granite panels with stories containing historical information on each war, its citizenships and events of that time as well as a statue known as "The Warrior" which commemorates the 3,440 Medal of Honor recipients in the U.S. Armed Forces[2]
