Memorial Day Ceremony 2024 - May 27, 1:45 PM

Purchase a Brick to Support the United States Marine Corps Memorial of Golden, Colorado

Due to the age of the Memorial and growth in the area it became apparent that a remodel was necessary to bring the Memorial up to today’s standards and fulfill the mission in “Bo” Bowers’ dream! Leadership Jefferson County, Marine Corps Organizations, and volunteers have developed a plan to do that! Read on to learn more….

Heartfelt explanations of what the Memorial is about and the remodel project.

This video explains why we have the Memorial and a little about the remodel project. The remodel project costs expand as we time passes so we are counting on you to buy bricks to speed up the funding of the project that will honor your Marines. They’re high quality and they will be a permanent part of the Memorial.

See the explanation below of the Walk of Valor, the Path to Service, the Marine Reflection Walk, and the Marines’ Walk Home. There is also an All Services Walk and we encourage the Navy, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Space Force to use the bricks as a way to remember your service or that of a loved one. The Marines have served with Sailors, Soldiers, Guardsmen, and now with the Space Force to accomplish our missions and we honor your service as well.


Welcome to the United States Marine Corps Memorial remodeled!

The property is a triangle shaped 3.5-acre plot that begins at the historic 6 & 40 junction in Golden, CO. The view approaching from the East is a forced perspective leading your eye up the “Path to Service” and across the “Honor Plaza” to the entrance which is two towers representing sentries arched by a giant lit Eagle, Globe and Anchor.

As you enter the property from the parking lot you pass through the sentries (represented by two large/tall structures in development) and under the arch on the “Walk of Valor” honoring the 6 Marine Divisions and the 4 Marine Airwings along with bricks that may be purchased by Marines earning one of the top 5 military honors.

The “Honor Plaza” is an 8-sided shape representing the Marine utility cover and the work that Marines do while serving in the Corps and in their local communities and businesses. They make a mark wherever they are working!

From the “Honor Plaza” you can keep walk straight ahead to the “Path to Service” depicting images of young people and the different paths they took to becoming Marines. There will be bricks available on this walk for specific paths taken (still being developed). It culminates in the Plaza as the young person enters bootcamp, graduates as a United States Marine, and salutes the flag and an honor squad. The squad is opposite the Marine saluting the flag and the other Marines. Yellow footprints will light below their feet signifying the entrance to bootcamp and the salute and uniform signify their graduation.

To the Southwest corner you can exit the Plaza onto the “Walk Home” – a dedicated brick project with stories of what it was like coming home.

The southern winding walk is a Marine Reflection walk that is a dedicated brick project for any Marine to buy a brick.

To the Northwest corner from the Plaza you enter the All Services Walk and pass by an all services monument honoring all who serve and assist Marines in their mission. It will also include a Gold Star feature.

The northern winding walk is an all services Reflection walk and will have stories of how the Seabees, Corpsmen, Chaplains and others assist Marines through the ages.

Fifty flags of the states, an MIA/POW flag, a garrison flag and a Marine Corps Flag will be represented throughout the property as this is a National Memorial and represents Marines from all around the country.

The West side of the Plaza has a piece of the wall removed with the iconic Eagle, Globe & Anchor depicted as you enter the plaza on either side. The wall design is being developed so watch here for more.

Each feature could have a sponsor that would be discretely recognized with the appropriate donation. Prices are being finalized and will be available soon.

The original Memorial Wall feature idea will be included as part of the new design of the Memorial– still in development.
