Patriot Field Memorial Park was built and dedicated in 2016. The nearly two acre park with nine flag poles, walking paths and memorial wall is a tribute to the veterans of Bingham County. The park is located at 355 North Ash in Blackfoot, Idaho. Patriot Field was created to be a place of reflection, an inspiration for freedom, and a legacy for future generations.

This website serves as a living memorial to veterans who have lived in Bingham county at one time or another in the lives. Some were born here and left, some stayed, some moved here later in life, some have moved on. But all have a story. From the young farm boy who was drafted to serve and many times had never left the county before being drafted - to the volunteer who felt called to defend his country - to the career soldier - to the ones who never came home. Please submit stories so others can better understand the life of a soldier. Red tabs under "Find a Veteran" and "Fallen Soldiers" indicate a story is attached. Select "Submit a Story" in the top ribbon on this page to submit your story or your loved one's story.
THAT NONE MAY BE FORGOTTEN
At the center of Patriot Field is a seven-foot bronze statue depicting two young children receiving a folded flag from a military officer. The statue reflects the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. The sculptor is Ben Hammond, a renowned artist who was raised in Bingham County. Thank you to all who donated and helped make the statue a reality.
