About the Mission:

The Capital Region Veterans Memorial, "Legacy Project" is a grassroots effort to create a respite in which all veterans, their families, and the public can experience a place of welcome, camaraderie, remembrance, and even vindication. It is intended to be a place of solitude, comfort, and peace that allows veterans and their families to perhaps heal the invisible wounds of war.

It will have memorials honoring all major conflicts including World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, The Gulf War, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Monuments will include the names of all Capital Region Veterans who gave their lives while serving in these conflicts. The Legacy Project will also include a Welcome Center and Veterans Cafe. The Cafe will be an integral part of the facility. It will have a Military Museum and is intended to be a place where veterans, their families, and the public can relax, make friends, and obtain information.
