On September 22, 2012, the City of Lake Alfred embarked on a project to build a memorial honoring our veterans. The memorial is located at Gardner Park at the intersection of US Highway 17/92 and Rochelle Avenue in Lake Alfred, Florida.
At the Veterans Memorial a large rendition of the scene at Iwo Jima is erected surrounded by a garden with flag poles flying the United States of America flag encircled with the flags of our military branches. The area is paved in bricks with the names of veterans and messages shared by their loved ones. In addition, the back of the Iwo Jima monument is filled with granite plaques displaying the pictures of the veterans and the personal messages to those brave people who so selflessly served our country and fought for our freedoms.
