    The Southern Arizona Veterans and First Responders Living Memorial is for all of Southern Arizona and will be the only Living Memorial in the region. It will be built in Oro Valley's Naranja Park.

    It will be a place of solemn honor, remembrance and education for all.

    The site is on 2.5 acres overlooking the Catalina
    Mountains donated by the Town of Oro Valley.

    The Memorial is 100 percent privately funded through the contributions of area businesses, citizens and organizations.

    Each element of the Memorial design has special significance. The Memorial has been named “Stars at Home and Abroad.'' The five pentagons represent the Armed Services branches of the Department of Defense forming a star. The star embodies the First Responders who serve in our communities.
