Nevada War Memorial Proposed for Carson City

Posted: Updated:

A state senator is proposing that a war memorial be built in Carson City to honor soldiers from Nevada who've died in military service since statehood in 1864.

Democratic Las Vegas Sen. David Parks introduced the bill on Monday. The memorial would be funded by donations to the state Public Works Division, not with tax money.

An aide to state Veterans Services chief Caleb Cage said Tuesday it wasn't immediately clear how many names would be on the monument.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the memorial would include benches, a pavilion and a 200-foot wall of names.

Nevada already has a State Veterans Memorial, as well as memorials for fallen police officers and the sailors who died on the USS Nevada battleship at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.
