Fallen Warrior Memorial
Pflugerville Fallen Warrior Memorial
 We Will Never Forget...
In November 2004, the citizens of Pflugerville honored a local Marine who gave his life in service to his country during Operation Iraqi Freedom. After his funeral, the community explored what other Pflugerville residents had given their lives in defense of freedom and discovered there was no public record of local soldiers lost in combat. A group of citizens met in January 2005 to plan a way to memorialize their sacrifices. Oral histories were researched, and a memorial was designed based upon this research. Thus, the Pflugerville Fallen Warrior Memorial was created.

The Fallen Warrior Memorial is prominently located in Pflugerville Park. Life-sized bronze sculptures of three generations of warriors stand in front of a granite pentagon upon which the names of our Fallen Warriors are engraved. Limestone amphitheater-style seating provides the backdrop for the pentagon and sculptures. Landscaped walks invite visitors into the memorial.

On Veterans Day 2012, the final part of the memorial was dedicated.  A small boy saluting the silhouettes of the soldiers, now stands as a depiction of the continual passing of the responsibility of keeping our nation safe.  This memorial was a gift to the Fallen Warriors of Pflugerville by grateful families and citizens.  All funds were donated by private parties and local businesses.
