Colorado Hardscapes is once again honored to be a part of an USAFA Memorial Project. Completed in the summer of 2022, the HH-3 Jolly Green Giant Static Display Project commemorates the role the nicknamed Jolly Green Giant helicopters played in combat. The motto of the crews that flew these helicopters behind enemy lines to rescue fellow service members was “That others may live”.
This significant project was completed in collaboration with the Air Force Academy Foundation, contractor iicon Construction and Landscape Architect, Matrix. Colorado Hardscapes’ role in this project was to install the “Red Carpet” concrete pathway leading up to the helicopter. Achieved by using recycled crushed glass in a red Sandscape Refined finish, the walkway covers a total of 575 sq. ft.
Today, the HH-3 Memorial allows citizens and military personnel alike to pay tribute to the bravery and sacrifice of those who have served and continue to serve our country.
