Tooles was selected to provide services for the construction of the new Dearborn Veterans Park and War Memorial.
The six-month process began with the transfer of four monoliths from its previous location at the former Dearborn City Hall. The four 7-foot monoliths are dedicated to the 340 Dearborn soldiers who lost their lives in World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Along with the five flags and plaza, other new features for the memorial include an eternal flame, which symbolizes the remembrance of those who have died in service, and a battlefield cross statue, which consists of a rifle placed inside a boot and a helmet on top. Next to the plaza steps are glass panels etched with all the major U.S. conflicts, starting from the Indian Wars in the early 1880s to the present war in Iraq. In addition to the name, the panels also show the number of people who fought in the conflict. The iconic fountain that once stood in front of the library had to be demolished in order to make room for the Veterans Park. To save some of the structure, pieces of marble from the fountain were used to create five benches that are located to the right of the monoliths.
