The Mount Rainier National Park Valor Memorial ensures that the individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice while saving the lives of others, will never be forgotten:
These individuals are also recognized on the In Memory page, along with Carpenter Murrell Trosper, who gave his life in service to the park.
Seven basalt stone columns placed in a natural configuration, along with a single entrance column, form the memorial. The memorial is intended to provide the opportunity to walk among the columns, to touch their rough but regular surface, and marvel in both their uniformity and individual attributes, not unlike the people they honor.
The Valor Memorial was dedicated on August 25, 2017 (news release). Valor Memorial dedication photos are available on Flickr.
