The Raymond Weeks Memorial is a granite marker in the northwest corner of Linn Park facing Boutwell Auditorium. It was dedicated on Veterans Day (November 11), 2007 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the first National Veterans Day, promoted by Birmingham's Raymond Weeks.

The Dyson Institute's "Patriotism in Action" committee joined with the Blue Star Salute Foundation and Birmingham's National Veterans Day Committee to create the memorial.
