Create an itinerary including The Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial
The first memorial constructed was located in St Anne, IL, the hometown of Captain Ryan A. Beaupre, one of Illinois' first casualties in the war against terror. In early 2004, the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial was built featuring the names of all fallen soldiers resulted from the Middle East conflicts since 1967. On June 19, 2004, the wall was dedicated commemorating the servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.

The Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial was built with donated material and labor. The founders, Tony Cutrano and Jerry Kuczera spearheaded this project to ensure that those sacrificing their lives for our freedom were given the proper recognition for the selfless service to our great country.

  • Stunning memorial along the Illinois River. There is also a block from 9/11 Pentagon. Plenty of parking.

  • The silence at the memorial is sobering - only the rushing of the river over the rocks. It's a few miles off the freeway on the other side of the small town, so don't give up when there's a break between signs. There's what appears to be fountains facing the river at the edge. I imagine it's beautiful in the summertime.
  • This memorial is a beautiful example of a community coming together to properly honor our American soldiers who served and gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom as well as their families. They do a wonderful job and I highly recommend people visit and learn more.
