The Wheeler County Veterans Memorial located on the grounds of the Wheeler County Courthouse in Wheeler, Texas. Dedicated on June 10, 1995 the memorial stands in honor of the county area service personnel who gave their lives in armed conflict from the Civil War through the Wars in the Persian Gulf.

The "walk of honor" leading to the memorial is made of bricks with the names of service personnel both living and deceased. The funds raised from these bricks were probably used to pay for the memorial.
