The Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial stands high on La Jolla’s Mt. Soledad, offering panoramic views of San Diego, University City, the mountains, the Pacific Ocean and Mexico. It is the only memorial that honors veterans, living or deceased, from the Revolutionary War to the current war on terrorism, with an image of the veteran. More than 5,100 individual veteran tributes, embedded on black granite plaques, are mounted onto 11 curved walls honoring our United States veterans.
