The Freedom Monument, a project of the Military Affairs Committee of the Williston Area Chamber of Commerce, was designed and built to immortalize the combat and peacekeeping actions of US service members after the Vietnam War and to any future actions which required the service of the men and women wearing a U.S. Military Uniform. The Freedom Monument was designed by local artist David Njos, who also designed and built the Korean/Vietnam Monument on the north side of Veterans Plaza.
