The corner of Abbott Street and Newport Avenue – 5099 Newport Avenue – is the Ocean Beach Veteran’s Memorial Plaza. The memorial is meant to be for all Veterans from any war. A large rock with a plaque attached to it and the Veteran’s flag pole are the centerpieces to the Veteran’s Memorial. On the ground are tiles lined up in ever-growing circles around the rock. Each tile is dedicated with names of Veterans and messages about them. A Veteran’s flag flies above the Ocean Beach Veteran’s Memorial Plaza.
The caption to the plaque reads “Dedicated to all Veterans Living or Dead who have Served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America and Shared a Portion of their Lives to Preserve the Honor and Integrity of this Great Nation 11 Nov 1995”. Ocean Beach proudly honors those individuals who have sacrificed for our great Country.
