Southeast Texas Veterans’ Memorials

Honoring Veterans in East Texas and the Beaumont Region

Golden Triangle Veteran’s Memorials

Southeast Texas has a rich history of military service. Our boys (and more than a few of our girls) left their family farms, school, and good jobs in the oil fields and refineries to serve in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and beyond. Many did not return. Many more have gone on peacefully at home, never having had a chance to share their stories. This time of year, families look to honor our veterans. To say, “I remember”. There are a number of veteran’s memorials throughout Southeast Texas:

Veteran’s Memorial of Southeast Texas. Ben J. Rogers Visitor’s Center on I-10 (near Ford Park). This beautiful memorial was conceived of and funded by The Southeast Texas Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 292. The unique design incorporates a 6′ black granite star topped with a black granite column with five one-half life size bronze sculptures that represent both male and female members of the different branches of service in their dress uniforms. Elegant, inclusive, and respectful.

Babe Zaharias Park. The employees of Conn’s gathered their funds together to make a memorial to Southeast Texas Veteran’s. They constructed a tasteful statue, plaque, and to get your attention hung an F4 Phantom jet fighter in the air above. The aircraft definitely catches eyes from I-10. When you visit, stop in at the Babe Zaharias Museum to remember another Southeast Texas Hero.

Forest Lawn Veteran’s Memorial Wall and Park. Forest Lawn is part of Dignity Memorial, a group that has spearheaded a number of veteran’s initiatives including a touring version of the Vietnam Memorial for veteran’s unable to make the trip to DC. Locally they created a large memorial wall and garden where Southeast Texans can go to remember our veterans.

Located in the park there are 10,000 names of SETX servicemen who served in WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Peace Time, Desert Storm, or with the Merchant Marines during WWII. The Tower of Honor, which is 50 feet tall, lists the names, rank, branch of service, and the war served in of the 930 of those killed or missing in action from the Golden Triangle. Other static displays represent the various branches of service. The displays include an F4-D Phantom Jet, an M60A3 Tank, and an UH-1 Huey Helicopter, an anchor from the Texaco SS Mississippi (the last WWII Merchant Marine ship to be decommissioned), an assault landing craft, and a seven-foot tall statue of an U.
