Riverfront Park is home to several monuments honoring servicemembers of Lincoln County. The centerpiece of the memorial area is a granite monument on a foundation of donated bricks. Each side of the monument is inscribed with the founding date and Latin motto of each branch of the US Armed Forces, such as the featured photo's "Haec Protegimus" ("This We'll Defend") for the Army. The monument is also topped with a life-size bronze sculpture created by a local artist and designed to represent the memorial's motto: "Continue the Fight, Leave No One Behind."
