Located at the Temecula Duck Pond, the “Letters Home” Veterans Memorial, designed by Artist Christopher Pardell, is dedicated in honor of our Veterans. The steps leading to the memorial and the wheelchair access ramp extending from the memorial are each dedicated as a “Path of Honor”. The paths are comprised of permanent granite pavers, each engraved with the names of men or women who have served our nation in our Armed Forces during peace or war at any time in our history from the Revolutionary War through the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The “Path of Honor” was founded in 2004 by David Micheal PH1 USN, a decorated WWII veteran of the Iwo Jima campaign.
