Henry Cordes Park Unveils New Monument
The American Legion Post 122 dedicated the “Freedom is not Free” monument at Henry Cordes Park in Yavapai County last week after years of searching for something to honor the United States military and first responders that represented the nation’s history.
After a year of raising the funds, the monument was proudly shared with the community and has been well received. The monument is a six foot sculpture by Marianne Caroselli and sits atop a six foot granite base next to the Veterans Memorial Ramada at the park, which is at South Cordes Lakes Drive and East Stagecoach Trail in Cordes Junction.
“The monument is a perfect example of why we need to be reminded of the service that veterans and first responders have done,” Yavapai County Supervisor Tom Thurman said. “The time spent to help our communities, our military, our police, our fire all the way down to our planning and zoning people, they’re trying to keep you safe and my heart goes out to all these people … this is a memorial for all of those.”
