The N.C. Veterans Park in Fayetteville includes sculptures, fountains, plazas and monuments to honor North Carolina military veterans in all branches. The tallest structure, called the Pride and Purpose Tower, is made of stainless steel and granite rises about 35 feet.
"As you see the veterans touch the stones and touch the hands, remember that their service represents a real story, a real life, a real family," said Perdue in her remarks.
The seven-acre, $15 million museum is located next to the Airborne and Special Operations Museum.
