Dedicated on Memorial Day weekend in 2004, the Heritage Veterans Memorial Plaza honors the veterans and active duty members of Orange County. Inscribed are the names of scores of defenders of America's freedom who served their nation in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and Merchant Marines at home and abroad. The plaza is home to a life-size bronze sculpture, Tears from a Grateful Heart, by Colorado artist Scott Stearman, depicting a soldier kneeling before the grave of a fallen comrade. The plaza is the site of an annual tribute to Orange County veterans held on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. The plaza is open to the public at all times. The Heritage Veterans Memorial Plaza was voted the number one attraction in 2005 by the readers of The Orange Leader.
