Although the building is very old, it was well maintained. The parking next to the Museum can be used to visit this landmark.

The simplicity of the memorial is so striking. It's a huge structure but is just outstandingly beautiful in it's simplicity. Definitely worth a visit to pay respect to those who died and those who remain lost...

Very impressive and awe-inspiring memorial to the American troops killed during the 2WW. Worth walking the stairs as the view from the top is spectacular.

We were here with a tour group and the weather was awful! We still made our way through the Memorial. It's very moving. If you are anywhere close you owe it to yourself to check it out.

This striking memorial monument is kinda stuck out in the middle of no where. However, they do a nice job of telling the story how the brave young men fought here

The Memorial was under improvements, so there was no way to get a picture without scaffolding. The memorial looks nice but there was really not a whole lot to see or to hold my interest, and I am a huge WWII buff!
