The WORLD SETS ON TOP OF THE MONUMENT


The POW - MIA plaque
is central



The monument contains a repository that is opened once each year on the day after POW/MIA Recognition Day for the placement of POW/MIA bracelets.

These bracelets were first worn during the Vietnam War so those POW/MIAs were not forgotten. As a symbol of hope, this monument stands ready to receive those bracelets of those men and women who are repatriated or whose bracelets which are worn and replaced.





Surrounding the 9000 sq. ft. plaza is a wall on which the Freedom Shrine is placed.

The Freedom Shrine, donated by the Exchange Club of Highline, consists of 28 original historic American documents photographically reproduced on Aluminum.

The shrines purpose is to remind all Americans that the freedoms
we enjoy today are, in essence, a gift from the past; that they are the product of idealism, determination, and sacrifice by vast numbers of courageous men and women who preceded us.
