Dedicated on April 18, 1954, for Korean War Veterans, the memorial stands on top of Mount Soledad with a 43-foot white cross and a 360-degree panorama view. Through the years the monument went on to commemorate veterans from two world wars and all world conflicts. In 2002, six concentric mini-walls were installed. The walls hold over 3,000 black granite plaques honoring individual war veterans, living and deceased, from all branches of military service. The cross has long been a subject of controversy, but the problem had some resolve in the 1990's when the San Diego City Council sold the cross and the half-acre of land surrounding it to the Memorial Association. In July 2006, the House of Representatives appoved a legislation bill for the memorial and the U.S. Senate approved the bill in Congress on August 1, 2006. On August 14, 2006, President Bush signed bill H.R. 5863 transferring ownership of the Mount Soledad land to the Federal Government to be preserved as a National War Memorial. Every Veteran's Day and Memorial Day, ceremonies are held on-site.
