Veterans Memorial Park

Welcome to the Truth or Consequences Veterans Memorial Park and the Hamilton Military Museum. The Park is dedicated to the memories of family and friends that have dedicated their lives to the service of our Great Country. We encourage all generations to come and experience the “Wall that Heals” as well as other attractions within the park.

In February 2003, a half-scale traveling replica of the world-renowned Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall made its permanent home in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. This wall was one of a handful of wall replicas traveling throughout the nation. Since its inception in 1996, more than one million people have visited the Memorial Funds Traveling Wall exhibition. Traveling Walls have made stops in nearly 200 U.S. locales in addition to touring the four Provinces of Ireland. This wall, purchased by New Mexico with the assistance of local businessmen, traversed the country for approximately three years before being retired in December 2002.

The Wall That Heals speaks not only to the loss, but of the lives of 58,420 men and women named on the wall – our parents, children, neighbors and friends.

We are confident that the memorial will become a frequent visiting place for those honoring the service of all who served in Vietnam, including the 399 New Mexicans who made the ultimate sacrifice. This memorial in Truth or Consequences serves as a common gathering place for New Mexicans both young and old to show respect and honor in remembrance.
