The Chase County All Veterans Memorial is located in a peaceful, quiet corner of Swope Park. It honors Veterans of all wars and conflicts. The focal point is the Cenotaph that names all Chase Countians who served from the Civil War to the present. On the grounds you will find a helicopter, tank, and an anchor, which represent the different branches of military service. To the right of the Cenotaph is a spacious gazebo that acts as a band shelter during community events. Each year ceremonies are held to honor our soldiers on Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Also a Flag Retirement Ceremony is held on Flag Day. The entire All Veterans Memorial was designed, financed and constructed by local Veterans as a tribute to all Veterans.
