Pueblo, Colorado is the location for this innovative undertaking – and rightfully so – Pueblo is known as the Home of Heroes. The community boasts the unique distinction as being the home of four Congressional Medal of Honor recipients. President Dwight D. Eisenhower once remarked, after bestowing the Medal of Honor upon Raymond G. “Jerry” Murphy, “What is it in the water out there in Pueblo … all you guys turn out to be heroes.” The Center's mission stems from the desire for all generations to understand and never lose sight of sacrifices made by civilians and veterans alike to elevate America as the greatest Country in the world.
The Arkansas River that slices through Pueblo’s downtown area is a recreation rock star, offering everything from fly-fishing and rafting west of Pueblo to world-class bird watching and fishing at Valco Ponds.
