A Proud City. A Grateful State. An Indebted Nation.
Welcome to the North Carolina Veterans Park located in historic downtown Fayetteville, America’s First Sanctuary Community for the Military. Fayetteville is proud to be the home of the North Carolina Veterans Park. The first state park dedicated to military veterans – young and old..living or deceased…from all branches of the Armed Services: Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard.
With its rich military heritage, Fayetteville is the perfect place to house the North Carolina Veterans Park. The city’s beautifully revitalized downtown is a fitting location, given the spirit of renewal embodied in the park. What’s more, North Carolina is proud to call itself the “Most Military Friendly” state, and the Veterans Park incorporates many natural and architectural elements that represent the state. Symbolic features pay homage to the veterans from over 100 North Carolina counties and represent the citizens who support them.
Fayetteville/Cumberland in the Vietnam War
The North Carolina Veterans Park will feature a special exhibit entitled Fayetteville/Cumberland in the Vietnam War. This exhibit, which opens in time for the Heroes Homecoming celebration in November, is a tribute to local veterans who served during the Vietnam Conflict. The exhibit features profiles of local Vietnam veterans, supplemented with a display of weapons, uniforms, military gear, and items brought home by service men and women. This special display is augmented by the permanent history panels in the NCVP Visitors Center which highlight North Carolina’s role in the conflict.
