Collier County Freedom Memorial
Plans for The Collier County Freedom Memorial began in 2004, when the Collier County Board of County Commissioners declared September as Freedom Month in Collier County and launched the "What Does Freedom Mean to You? campaign.
The campaign grew into a community project involving County officials, local law enforcement agencies, the Naples City Council and area fire departments. The memorial pays tribute to members of our armed forces who have sacrificed their lives in the defense of our nation along with the law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency medical personnel and civilians who died in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
