The Saskatchewan War Memorial monument pays tribute to Saskatchewan residents who gave their lives in service during World War 1, World War 2, the Korean War, and military training in peacetime operations.
The first stage of the memorial was dedicated by lieutenant governor Jack Wiebe in November 1995. It bears the names of those from Saskatchewan who lost their lives in World War 1.
The second stage was dedicated in October 2005 by lieutenant governor Lynda Haverstock. It lists 5000 names of those who lost their lives in service in the other conflicts.
If you take a look around you'll also see a plaque that honors the memory of Saskatchewan war brides who married Canadian servicemen. There's also a monument to remember and honor the nurses who served during these times.
