About Our Organization
Siouxland Freedom Park is home to a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. The 250-foot granite wall is engraved with the names of more than 58,000 fallen service members from the Vietnam War. Park officials are currently working on exhibits inside the Interpretive Center, which is set to open Veterans Day 2023. The Korean War Memorial is also set to open fall 2023. Siouxland Freedom Park is a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization. The park is located at 1801 Veterans Drive in South Sioux City, NE.
Our debt to veterans can never truly be repaid to veterans, but on these hallowed grounds, we will strive to honor their memory, extend our hearts to aid their healing and educate young and old on the historic significance of their service.
The Brigadier General Bud and Doris Day Interpretive Center at Siouxland Freedom Park is set to open on Veterans Day 2023! The Board of Directors would like to create a special exhibit showcasing the most highly-decorated Airmen in United States Air Force history, Brig. Gen. Bud Day. One-of-a-kind artifacts and photos of Day have already been collected and the board would like an outstanding way to display those items.
"Our nation honors her sons and daughters who answered the call to defend a country they never knew and a people they never met."
A Korean War Memorial is in the plans at Siouxland Freedom Park. Right now, Port Neal Welding is working towards constructing nineteen 2-D statues, made of stainless steel, which will represent the Korean War Memorial in Washington, D.C. Plans for the memorial have installation behind the wall of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, also at Siouxland Freedom Park. Each statue is being sold for $10,000. If $10,000 is raised through the 5th Annual Siouxland Big Give, one of the soldiers will be named after Siouxland Big Give in recognition of their community efforts for all non-profits. Siouxland Freedom Park officials hope to have this project in the construction phase in 2023.
Fundraising efforts for 2021/2022 are for the museum-quality, custom-created exhibits and displays for the Brigadier General Bud and Doris Day Interpretive Center. These exhibits, which will cost approximately $400,000, will contain features unique to Siouxland and tell the story of the heroism and patriotism of our veterans.
