Born in America's defense during World War II, the City of Henderson continues to honor its war born heritage. On November 11, 1994, the City officials dedicated the only Veterans Memorial Wall in southern Nevada, honoring those that have fought for our country to protect the threads of freedom and democracy that are woven into the fabric of American patriotism.
Originally inscribed with 1,213 names, the wall today bears more than 1,500 veterans and soldiers that have served our country, standing proudly within the Henderson Events Plaza adjacent to Henderson City Hall. The Wall honors our community's civic leaders, deceased veterans that lived in Henderson prior to 1980, all Vietnam War veterans either living or deceased, and soldiers killed in action living in Henderson from 1980 to present.
