NM Veterans' Memorial Visitors Center

Set in the shadow of the majestic Sandia Mountains, the Memorial may be reserved for reunions, meetings, conferences, banquets, weddings and other events.

NM Veterans' Memorial Amphitheater & Sculpture Garden

The Parade Ground

The Parade Ground is centered on the axis of the Amphitheater and the Memorial Garden. Adjacent to the place of The Fallen Friend, the Parade Ground is ideal for military ceremonies, marching bands, and public gatherings.

The Battle

In this sculpture by Jesus Moroles, granite megaliths, cleaved by large metal planes recall silhouettes of ruins. Occasionally, when the wind is just right, the metal planes will strike the granite megaliths and make a low, resonant sound, recalling the line from John Donne's poem: "Therefore, send not to ask for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for thee."
