New Orleans Victory Circle for Veterans
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!
The Circle is located less than 500 feet from the World War II Museum. It is time to moderinize the circle to "honor all veterans of all wars."
It is time to use the circle to educate the public on Gold Star Families, Purple Heart Recipients, Soldiers Missing in Action, and Prisoner of War soldiers. This modernization should be done quickly as every week, we lose more veterans of WWII. This week one of the few remaining Navajo Code Talkers left us. There is a statue for the Code Talkers on Victory Circle. We want to dedicate this project while they are still with us.
We are timing the release of this petition with Memorial Day and the 75th Anniversary of D-Day (June 6, 1944).
We propose naming the circle as Victory Circle. Besides statues of all soldiers in multiple races and including women in service, it would list the history of all wars the United States have been involved with.

The flower pots would be replaced with statues promoting equality by adding statues to the Navajo Code Talkers (7 remain) and the Tuskegee Airmen (estimate 10 remain).
Over 1,000 other proposals have been submitted, therefore we ask your help in bringing attention this idea to honor Louisiana's 300,000 veterans and all veterans who visit New Orleans. The Council & Mayor have not announced how they will determine the winning proposal. WWL-TV Report May 2019
The Victory Circle Proposal has been explained on Jeff Crouere WLAE-TV
Our proposal is over 50 pages, as it lists all activities for veterans the circle could feature and the history of American Cemeteries and Memorials overseas. A short video was produced using drone footage. Victory Circle Drone
