This memorial was beautiful and has a nice setting. It was included in the bus tour from the Visitor's Center. We were able to get out, walk around, and take pictures.

Worth a short visit to walk thru and read of the WWII events. Tablets describe both Atlantic and Pacific actions broadly but do offer very interesting facts.

Nice stop on your journey into or out of Annapolis; the memorial is tastefully done. It offers wonderful panorama views of Annapolis, the waterfront and the academy. Parking is convenient and access is easy.

Lovely and well kept memorial to WWII soldiers made even more moving by the view of the Naval Academy across the river. Well worth a short stop for the memorial as well as for the scenic overlook.

This memorial is beautiful. Even with snow on the ground, it doesn't distract from the beauty of the memorial. Overlooking the memorial brings a sense of calmness and gratitude. This is definitely recommended for all ages. It is easy to find and parking is available which makes it great for larger groups of visitors.

After passing this memorial many times on the way to downtown Annapolis, we stopped with relatives to take a closer look. It is well worth the time. Great scenic views with plenty of historical facts about WWII and the men and women of Maryland who served our country.

The memorial is situated on the high bank of the Severn and provides a scenic view on the Naval Academy and parts of the city, as well the bridge across the river.
