Facing Broadway and in front of the parking lot for the VFW building is the VFW Centennial Plaza.

The plaza features the sculpture Citizen Soldier by Jim Brothers.  Behind the sculpture is a wall featuring the emblems for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.  To the right of the sculpture, behind a low wall, are five plaques signifying different aspects of the VFW and the military experience.  At the base of each of the plaques are two bubblers, giving the fountain aspect to the plaza.  The bricks in front of the armed services emblems and the plaques are dedicatory bricks featuring names of people who served their country.
