The City of Chandler, local veterans, and community and business leaders have formed a public/ private partnership and embarked on a $2 million capital fundraising campaign to facilitate the design and construction of a veterans memorial. This beautiful and lasting memorial will be located at Veterans Oasis Park, on the northeast corner of Chandler Heights and Lindsay roads.
 
Today, the City’s only memorial for our military veterans is a marker placed in the downtown square, within Dr. A.J. Chandler Park. The commitment and sacrifice of the men and women who served in the past, are actively serving today, or whose service is yet to come, deserve greater recognition from our community. We have an opportunity to show our appreciation in a way that is unique for the region.
 
The Field of Honor will be the first veterans memorial of its size and scope in the Southeast Valley. This regional memorial honors all veterans and pay tribute to all branches of the U.S. military. It will serve as an educational resource and provide a solemn and inspiring experience for all ages. It will be a place of reflection where individuals, families and groups of various sizes can express their love and appreciation for our veterans. The memorial will recognize not only the men and women who stood the watch, but also their supportive family members who made their own sacrifices on behalf of our country.
 
Groundbreaking is planned for 2014.
