Our adventuring party have entered a courtyard dedicated to Military heroes and veterans of the past. They have found the monument that will summon an important figure from military history so that they can acquire the information they have been seeking. However, they will need to set the dials on each of the 5 pillars to the appropriate letter before time runs out. Aiding them in cracking the code are five statues of military veterans and a strange alphabetic code on the wall.

This puzzle is inspired by the Anthem Veterans Memorial in Anthem, Arizona. Each of the five pillars represents a branch of service. U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Coast Guard.

Good morning, and to those that served, Happy Veteran’s Day. Knowing that so many Military members play D&D, I wanted to create a puzzle with a military theme. This puzzle can be used by anyone… there are plenty of clues to help solve the puzzle with or without any military knowledge what-so-ever.

Happy Veterans Day to our active and prior service military. Thank you for your service!
