About Our Memorial
Located in Old Town Victorville on the corner of 7th Street and Forrest Ave, our Memorial is all based on casualties from WWII, Korea, Viet Nam, Grenada, and 2 from Iraq. The statue is called "The Price of Freedom". The Soldier is the "Universal Soldier", that is he is wearing the uniform of the aforementioned wars, and conflicts, and is wearing parts from the different branches of service. The weapons also reflect this. The 30 names are those that graduated, or attended the campus across the street, when it was the High School, and after when it became a Junior High.Recently, the campus has been converted into a magnate school, grades 7-12, and renamed University Prepartory School.
Whatever support you may be able to provide to the Foundation will be highly appreciated.
