The monument is in the middle of a traffic circle so the visit was very brief. Very visually appealing. Glad to see our vets honored.

Unable to walk to the monument. It's in the middle of a traffic circle. It is well kept and it's nice to know that we Veteran's still have a monument that doesn't offend anyone.

It is a memorial for the Veterans of all wars, and has been there as long as i can remember. There is also an empty chair across the street at the Courthouse for the MIA's

I moved from South Florida to Johnson City then Elizabethton! Beautiful monument and small town family! Take time to view this monument and reflect on what it represents!

This is one side of the entrance to downtown shops and a few hundred feet from the covered bridge. It's an easy drive by but one should spend a little time to remember those they honor.

Monument is located in the middle of the traffic circle at the end of the old downtown area. The area is a very quaint and well maintained historic district. Very nice place to take a stroll and do some antiquing

This was memorial is almost 100 years old. It was first established for WW1 vets but now is a monument to all veterans. I recommend you walk to it and read the original plaque put years ago.
