Memorial honours the war service of the community's indigenous ancestors who have served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. 

During the Second World War between 55 to 60 local men served in the defence forces. People in Mapoon also helped rescue American airmen and assisted in the dismantling of Japanese sea mines during the war. One of the 18 sea mines found along the Gulf coast features in the memorial.
