• A Tradition of Excellence •
One of the most important responsibilities of the Clovis Veterans Memorial District is the commissioning and maintenance of our memorials. Each memorial honors the veterans of our community in a different form and represents a different aspect of veterans' service.
We invite you to visit the memorials in person.
...The Last Full Measure of Devotion...
This memorial is located just outside of our main entrance on 808 4th Street, Clovis CA.
Short white walls of brick surround this globe, and on each is a large bronze and marble plaque.
Each plaque memorializes veterans of a different war or battle though our nation's history, as well as the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.
The structures invite quiet contemplation as one wanders between the stone barriers.
The Garden of Honor
The Veterans' Garden of Honor was established as a part of the District's 2006-2008 reconstruction.
It is a living remembrance of Clovis Veterans who gave their lives serving our country in World War I, World War II, Vietnam, Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Persian Gulf.
On Behalf of a Grateful Nation
This memorial is located near our south entrance on Veterans Parkway, Clovis CA.
Each figure represents a different military branch from a different era in our history.
The sculpture was completed in 2003 by sculptor Thomas King.
“My hope,” said King, “is that each figure represents the spirit of veterans past, who come to assure us that those who fall in the line of duty are never forgotten.”
Trust In Me, My Friend
This memorial is located at the Miss Winkles Pet Adoption Center,
85 N Temperance Ave, Clovis, CA 93611.
Military dogs have saved over 10,000 lives since WWII.
To honor our K-9 heroes, our Trust In Me, My Friend memorial is dedicated to military dogs and their handlers.
Pinedale Assembly Center
This memorial is located at 625 W. Alluvial Ave, Fresno, CA.
The Pinedale Assembly Center Remembrance Plaza was created as a joint effort of the Clovis Veterans Memorial District, Central California District Council of the Japanese American League and the Central California Nikkei Foundation.
It honors the 4,800 Japanese-Americans who were interned nearby from May to July 1942.
A sculpted fountain serves as a serene focal point for the plaza. Plaques on a cement semi-circle tell the history of the former internment camp, as well as the U.S. soldiers of Japanese descent, and the path towards reconciliation.
