A new Veterans Wall is up at The Village at Legacy Pointe in Waukee.

The wall features photos of all veterans living at the community and will grow over time as more veterans join the community.

“We wanted to create a permanent feature to honor our veterans,” said Amy Barth, Executive Director at The Village at Legacy Pointe.

“They have given so much to serve the country and this is a small way in which we can show our appreciation.”


Roger Honald leads the Pledge of Allegiance at Veterans Wall unveiling at The Village at Legacy Pointe.

At the dedication of the wall, veteran and The Village at Legacy Pointe resident Roger Honald lead attendees in the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance. “There is no greater honor than to lead our Pledge of Allegiance,” Honald said when asked about his role.
