About the Honor Wall

The 88-foot long, black granite wall gives special recognition to the current five branches of the armed forces: Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. The United States Great Seal is boldly represented on the first eight foot panel section along with the five service branches and a special tribute that states, “This memorial is dedicated by the city of Peoria to all of those who have served and are serving our country in the defense of freedom.” 

An inscription along the length of the wall bears the saying, “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and success of freedom.” John F. Kennedy, 1961 Inaugural Address


The public is invited to visit Peoria's Honor Wall memorial inside of Rio Vista Community Park, located at 8866 W. Thunderbird Road, Peoria, AZ 85381

Honor a Veteran

Recognize an individual who has served in the U.S. Military by reserving space for their name and service details on Peoria’s Veterans Honor Wall. The Honor Wall is an important and impactful element of Peoria’s Veterans Memorial. The memorial pays tribute to the past, present and future veterans and their families for the sacrifices they have made to protect our country, ideals and virtues. Each honor space will include the Veteran's name, rank, branch, and service years. Honor spaces will be reserved on a first-come basis and must be received by September 30th to be included in this year's Veterans Memorial Ceremony and Dedication. Download the Honor Wall brochure (PDF)
