Anchorage Veterans' Memorial Renovation

It was 26 years ago when Vietnam veteran Tim Benintendi was appointed to the Veterans’ Action Committee by Mayor Tony Knowles, also a Vietnam Veteran. The committee was tasked with planning, designing and fundraising for a new Anchorage Veterans’ Memorial. The original memorial was on L Street between Ninth and 10th avenues, and was constructed and dedicated in 1952 by Spenard VFW Post 1685. The improved memorial was to be a more substantial symbol for the increasing veteran residents, given Anchorage’s robust growth since the 1950s. The result was the memorial we have today on the park strip—on I Street between Ninth and 10th avenues.
