The first of its kind Memorial Park in the country to honor how First Responders & Veterans lived their lives
An Exclusive Park in Texas to Educate People & Spread Awareness About Post Traumatic Injuries
The foundation of our society is built upon the sacrifices made by first responders and military veterans. While we have proudly honored the service and sacrifice they make for us; we have fallen short when it comes to the emotional sacrifices they have made. PTI (post-traumatic injury/ injuries) continues to outpace line of duty deaths, with the exception of COVID-related illness. Yet, the support we provide to the families and first responders does not begin to address the need.
For years, families and friends have not had a place of reflection or public recognition of their loved ones. Law enforcement, 9-1-1 telecommunications operators, firefighters, emergency service personnel, and veterans have been brushed aside as less than because they lost their emotional battles. This Park will heal the souls of the families, it will recognize their honorable service, and it will send a clear message that we will never again forget that we sometimes give more of ourselves than is visible to the naked eye.
This 22-acre, Heroes Memorial Bridge Park, will be built on the shores of Lake Ray Hubbard in Rowlett, Texas, and will be a testament of honor, a place of healing, and a catalyst to change the culture of seeking mental help. On September 26, 2020, the Highway 66 bridge, which connects the cities of Rockwall and Rowlett, was renamed Heroes Memorial Bridge which borders the land of the memorial Park.
