The other side tells a story through the four granite panels: Homeland, Family, Patriot, and Sacrifice. The scenes on each panel are a reflection of each community's Gold Star Families and their fallen Heroes.

Veterans Village In partnership with the Veterans Community Project, the Longmont Community Foundation and others in the community are raising funds to build and operate a veterans village in Longmont. A Veterans Village is a community of transitional tiny-homes and onsite services to provide housing stability and address the underlying cause of the Veterans' homelessness. This combination of housing stability and onsite services will lead to more successful permanent housing outcomes. In contrast to traditional homeless services, a tiny-home provides the Veteran with privacy, a sense of security, and the ability to reintegrate at a comfortable pace. Veteran services are facilitated through an onsite community center that provides the Veterans with mentoring, case management, counseling, and linkage to other programs and services.
