The monument is located in Denali State Park. The monument was erected on May 28, 2001 and dedicated to all Veterans (multi-war).

The memorial consists of five 20-foot tall concrete panels, one each to represent the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard, arranged in a semi-circle. A statue of two Alaska Territorial Guards, carved by Canadian sculptor George Pratt, greet you at the entrance. On each panel is a short history of that branch’s contribution to Alaska.

The Denali State park is 325,240 acres, almost one-half the size of Rhode Island. The park provides visitors with a great variety of recreational opportunities, ranging from roadside camping to wilderness exploration.

The Alaska Veterans Memorial sits on a hill overlooking Byers Lake and is a perfect spot to stop on the drive from Anchorage to Denali. There is a staffed visitor center and small book store on site
