Renee Palmer-Jones: The Anthem Veterans Memorial

The significance of each veteran’s day, 11-11, is central to the design of the memorial. At precisely 11:11 a.m., each year on 11-11, the sun will align through the elliptical holes in each of the five marble pillars (each representing a branch of the the U.S. military) in order to perfectly illuminate a round mosaic inlaid into the bricks, that of the Great Seal of the United States. The symbolism of the five pillars standing in formation in order to protect the United States and to complete the solar illumination is representative of our military personnel working together, in all regards, in the security and defense of all American citizens.
