Long Beach Veterans

This mural is a tribute to Long Beach Veterans in the U.S. Armed Services. It is painted on the side of a building facing Houghton Park, in North Long Beach on the corner of Atlantic Blvd. and Harding St. It is directly across the street from a Vietnam Veterans Memorial in the park. This intersection is the starting and finishing point for Long Beach's annual Veterans Day Parade and is a fitting location to honor Long Beach Veterans.
The mural depicts historical images of Long Beach Veterans of many conflicts, from the Civil War through Iraq, as well as medals honoring Veterans for bravery and service. These images are arrayed against a patriotic banner flowing the length of the wall.
