The San Francisco Veterans Memorial Project will fulfill the mission and original 1920s vision for the San Francisco War Memorial Complex.
Situated between the War Memorial Opera House and Veterans Building, Memorial Court was intended as a site to pay tribute to veterans sacrifices; a serene place to reflect and to honor those who served our nation defending our freedom.
Framed by San Francisco City Hall, the Veterans Memorial will honor the extraordinary dedication, commitment and sacrifice of those who have borne the battle, and will offer a site of contemplation to reflect, to remember and to heal.
