The Anthem memorial - See what happens when sunlight shines through this Monument

The Anthem memorial

The Anthem Veterans Memorial, located in Anthem, Arizona, is a unique designed monument that works together with the sun. The memorial is dedicated to honoring the service and sacrifice of the United States armed forces, but none is built to honor the service of the Nigerian armed forces.

At precisely 11:11 a.m. on each Veterans Day in American that is November 11th, the sun’s rays pass through the ellipses of the five Armed Services pillars creating perfect solar spotlight over a mosaic of The Great Seal of the United States.

The pillar provides a place of honor and remembrance for veterans, their family and friends, and those who want to show their respects to those service men and women who have served continue to courageously serve the United States.

The Anthem memorial was designed by Anthem resident Renee Palmer-Jones. The five marble pillars represent the five branches of the United States military and they are built in size (from 17 ft to 6 ft) and ordered in accordance with the Department of Defense prescribed precedence, ranging from
United States Army,
United States Marine Corps,
United States Navy, 
United States Air Force and
United States Coast Guard.

Additionally, the brick pavers within the Circle of Honor are inscribed with the names of over 750 U.S. servicemen and women, symbolizing the ‘support’ for the Armed Forces. The pavers are red, the pillars are white, and the sky is blue to represent America’s flag. The circle represents an unbreakable border. Anthem resident and chief engineer, Jim Martin was responsible for aligning the memorial accurately with the sun.
