The organizers of the Dallam-Hartley Veterans Memorial met in May to discuss additions to the current memorial at the Seventh Street Park.

The memorial was originally dedicated on September 11, 2004, after over two years of work by the Dallam-Hartley County Veterans Committee. It included eight slabs with the names of veterans on both front and back, and two slabs with the names of 69 people who gave their lives in service to their country. There are also three slabs that describe every war and military action that the U.S. has been involved in from the Civil War through the military action in Somalia in 1993.
