The Mesquite Veterans Memorial is a community-wide effort led by the City of Mesquite to build a new Veterans Memorial in Mesquite, Texas. The current Veterans Memorial, established in 1975, is at the flagpole in Heritage Square located in historic downtown Mesquite.
In 2010, an effort was started by a citizens group called Heroes of Mesquite to build a new place of reflection and education to recognize military veterans. It would be a destination to provide memory of the men and women of Mesquite who sacrificed their life in military service for our country, and in honor of those who have served. Through the diligent efforts of the Heroes of Mesquite, many community donations have been received since 2010. In 2017, a new community-wide campaign in partnership with the City of Mesquite is using the progress made by the Heroes of Mesquite to launch further public awareness and funding to design and build a new Mesquite Veterans Memorial. The campaign will seek donations from the general public, grant programs and corporate giving initiatives.
The design and construction of the Mesquite Veterans Memorial will be driven by public donations and corporate sponsorships. The location of the memorial will be at City Lake Park, 200 Parkview Street. The Mesquite City Council purchased property near the park as part of a master plan to connect the park to historic downtown Mesquite.
