Kansas State Capitol - Online tour - Kansas Veterans Walk
Located on the pavement south of the Capitol, this memorial was dedicated on Veteran’s Day, November 11, 1997. The memorial is modeled after the obelisk erected in the Medal of Honor Grove at the Freedom’s Foundation in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. The site was chosen because of the close proximity of the four Freedom Trees dedicated in 1973 to honor Kansas POW-MIAs. Funding for this memorial came from businesses and private donors, including members of the Kansas American Legion and Auxiliary.
