Favorite thing: Dedicated on November 11, 1990, the Colorado tribute to Veterans Monument is both a memorial to those who lost their lives in service to our country and a tribute to veterans of the past, present, and future. Tim Drago spearheaded the effort to create, fund and build the memorial. After a statewide contest was held, a committee of veterans chose the design submitted by Robert Koot and Richard Farley. The monument tower and wall were built of red sandstone from Lyons (Boulder County), Colorado, and represent the image of strength and vigilance. The beacon at the top of the tower represents lasting awareness and perpetual memory.
