The Ventura County Veterans Memorial, located at the corner of Victoria Ave. and Telephone Rd. was installed/or proposed on October 8, 1985 to honor all Ventura County veterans that served in the U.S. Armed Forces as well as those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The Vietnam Veterans of Ventura County, (VVVC) an IRS 501(C)19 non-profit #93-0966053, with other non-profit veteran’s & fraternal organizations in the county & the students at ACE Charter High School are looking to add two (2) life-sized bronze statues.

One is the “Gold Star” and the other is the “Remembering” statue.

– The “Gold Star” statue is a life size rendition of a wife/mother kneeling while holding her husbands’/sons’ folded flag.
– The “Remembering” statue is a life size rendition of a kneeling soldier reaching out and remembering his fallen brothers & sisters.

Both statues are the work of Sutton Betti, the son of the late David Betti, former president of the VVVC & former Commander of VFW Post 1679 in Ventura and an inspiration to us all.

The statues will be placed, one at each end of the current monument. The cost of both statues including installation is approximately $70,000 – $75,000. The various veterans & fraternal groups in the county are being asked to pledge their support and to help seek donations, public or private, for this project.


The proposed date of completion/installation hope to be on one of these three (3) dates. Memorial Day May 27, 2024, Gold Star Mother’s Day Sept. 23, 2024 or Memorial Day May 26, 2025
