Names of Nebraska's Fallen Heroes of recent conflicts.
The memorial is six miles west of Sutton on Highway 6 then two miles south on Road R to Road 315 and then ¼ mile west of the intersection of Road R and Road 315. The memorial is in an austere setting at a hunting location recognizing the interests of Adam Herold, the inspiration for the memorial.

Background information and the story of the dedication can be found at:   SORRY - BROKEN LINK. We're looking for a replacement. Any suggestions? Or additions?

The Memorial is 1/4 mile west of the intersection of Road R and Road 315, in a graveled area north of the road.
