The Welcome Home Soldier Monument

6451 US-34, Albia, IA 52531

Welcome Home Soldier Monument is a public monument of national magnitude to honor all the United States Veterans, living or deceased, in the nation’s heartland, Monroe County, IA (just west of the Albia, IA city limits). It memorializes the active-duty peacetime and wartime honorably discharged Veterans in the past, present, and those in the future. Their commendable services will be immortalized and be used as a model and a history lesson of the wars and great battles fought for the freedom of future generations.

The CJ3 Foundation has partnered with the Welcome Home Soldier Monument. All CJ3 Recipients who go through the CJ3 Mental Health & Wellness process and are Veterans of the U.S. military who were on active duty (Reserve and National Guard members called on active duty for other-than-training) are forever memorialized as we have their names etched onto the memorial wall at the Welcome Home Soldier Monument to forever honor their service.
