Only on 11 November, The sun’s rays to spotlight The Great Seal at precisely 11:11 AM

The Anthem Veterans Memorial is an Arizona monument devoted to the memory and sacrifice of all US armed forces. It is a place for reflection for veterans and prayers for friends and relatives of the fallen in battle.

The Anthem Veterans Memorial in Anthem, Arizona is a memorial to fallen American soldiers. And every year, for the Veteran’s Day , November 11 at exactly 11:11, this cenotaph receives a light that pierces its five pillars to perfection to illuminate the American shield represented on the ground. A tribute!

The memorial was designed by Anthem resident Renee Palmer-Jones. At 11:11 am on the day of the veterans, the American party that falls just on November 11, the rays of the sun filter through the ellipses of each pillar and form a halo of light around the Great Eagle mosaic of the United States that is on the floor .

They are staggered in size (from 17 ft to 6 ft) and ordered in accordance with the Department of Defense prescribed precedence, ranging from the United States Army, the United States Marine Corps, the United States Navy, the United States Air Force and the United States Coast Guard.
