Historic State Capitol Park is the home of the California Mexican American Veterans' Memorial honoring the final measure of devotion of California's Latino Veterans to state and country. Presently, a lone soldier monument "El Soldado" stands across the west front of the State Capitol. In 2007, the State Legislature created the Mexican American Veterans' Memorial Beautification and Enhancement Committee to beautify and enhance the existing memorial, and to secure private funding to complete the project. Electronic Donation information is provided on this page to assist donors wishing to support and honor our veterans.
The memorial will be funded through private contributions. Donations can be made online by mail:
