Monuments

Fallen Soldier Monument

In memory of all Idaho women and men who lost their lives in service to our country.

This monument with the United States Flag flying half-staff, represents all branches of service, including the Civil War Veterans, Spanish American War Veterans, and the Black Hawk Indian War Veterans. Many of these veterans settled on the new Minidoka Irrigation Project with the building of Minidoka Dam in 1904.

These Veterans represent 152 years of Military Service men and women buried in the State of Idaho and honored specifically at the "Fallen Soldier" monument.

The United States Flag, displayed at half-staff is 'one of a kind' and is intended to represent a very "Special" place for those "Fallen Soldiers". Through the courtesy of Rupert, Idaho Senator Dean Cameron, who presented S-1155 to the Legislature of the State of Idaho at Boise, requesting the flag be flown at half-staff on a year by year basis.
