Veterans Memorial

Our Veterans Memorial is located at Margaret Stoecker Park in Manchester. It is there that the City proudly displays our Flags of Valor collection on select dates. 

Manchester has a proud collection of Flags of Valor. Part of the 15th anniversary display entitled “America’s Heartland Remembers,” these 26 American flags were some of the more than 7000 flying in remembrance on Art Hill in 2016, each flag an individualized tribute to a military hero who lost their life in the “War on Terror.” Also part of this important collection, an American flag that flew in the center circle of the 2016 Art Hill installation in honor of those heroes that lost their lives to PTSD, a recognition that the casualties of war occur on and off the battlefield. The Flags of Valor are displayed at the Veterans Memorial on the following dates each year:

  • Vietnam War Veterans Day (March 29)
  • Memorial Day (Fourth Monday in May)
  • D-Day (June 6th)
