Eisenhower Park Veterans Memorial

 A tribute to county veterans.

  Eisenhower Park

  East Meadow, NY 11554

The Veterans Memorial at Eisenhower Park serves as a tribute to the heroes of Nassau County. The

commemoratives are dedicated to the bravery of two groups of Nassau County residents; the deceased

Nassau County Veterans of all wars, and county firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty. In 1947,

the park dedicated a memorial to those who died in World War II, and the Veterans Memorial plaza has been

growing ever since. Veterans have constructed individual monuments to honor Purple Heart and Medal of

Honor recipients, Merchant Marines, veterans of World War II, the Korean War and POWs and MIAs. In

1971 the county constructed the Veterans Tower dedicated to Nassau County veterans of the Civil War, Spanish-

American War, World Wars I and II, Korean and Vietnam Wars. The avenue of flags represents active veteran

organizations in Nassau County, and thousands of names appear on the recently constructed Walls of Honor.
