KDC Associates was honored to have been selected to design the Chris Kyle "American Sniper" Veteran's Memorial.  The site is carefully designed to highlight the central sculpture by Vic Payne, as well as to provide symbolism of honor and healing to all former, current, and future military.  The firm had intensive conversations with current and former U.S. Navy SEAL members, as well as with numerous other special forces.  If you are ever on Interstate 20 in West Texas, look up the memorial.  It is near the interstate on State Highway 191 and Faudree Road near Odessa.  It is a special place.
