This Veterans Memorial pays homage to past and present Seminole Nation warriors.  The multi-phased memorial includes a flag assembly area, a memorial wall displaying the service seals and names of those lost in battle, a cultural walk with plaques highlighting historical symbols of war, restroom facilities for visitors, parking, and maintenance facilities.

As the 1st phase of a master plan for a larger sustainable development, 1Architecture designed the Memorial to be very green.  A 10,000 gallon cistern catches water from the entire 6-acre development for reuse, while composting toilets, LED lighting, draught tolerant plantings, and recycled crushed granite in lieu of turf ensures efficient use of natural resources and limited impact to the site while requiring little to no maintenance.
