Huntsville Madison County Veterans Memorial

The Memorial Fountain System begins with a flow of water cascading over the continuous weir, which is punctuated by 8 Black Granite Markers. This flow symbolizes the blood which has been spilled defending our nation's freedom and flows into the Sacrifice Pool, the Courage Pool, and the Defender Fountain. The small white headstones in the Defenders Fountain are replicas of those in Arlington National Cemetery and represent all of our fallen warriors. Water feeds through the Defender Fountain into the Freedom Fountain, thus providing a contained circular flow.The pulsating streams of water rising above the Memorial from the Freedom Fountain reminds us that this is a living tribute to all veterans and gives the sense of life, liberty, and freedom springing forth from a grateful community.
