The memorial is expected to be completed by mid-November.

The Rockford Lions Club will construct a Veterans Memorial, honoring the six branches of the military - Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy and the new branch of Space Force. It will be a place to honor, remember and welcome local veterans.

The Rockford Veterans Memorial will be located at the north end of Riverside Park. There will be an adjacent parking lot for visitors.
