A nice place to visit and remember those who have served the United States. It's especially moving during a US holiday such as Memorial Day or Fourth of July because its surrounded by American flags.

The memorial park is easy to reach. It is especially moving over the national holidays when the monument is surrounded by U.S. flags all around the perimeter. The combination of the monument, the eternal flame and the flags is inspiring.

This eternal flame memorial to our war heroes is a welcome tribute. There is important historical information, easily accessed from ample parking. Easy on & off major roadways.

This is a smaller version of the memorial in Washington D.C. You can find it by exiting CT Route 9, continuing to Ella Grasso Boulevard and heading west toward the campus of Central Connecticut State University. Watch for the little cul-de-sac just west of Route 9. The site is much like a tiny park with a monument/statue as its focal... More

If you are interested in WWII memorials and can't get to WashingtonDC this is the largest Iwo Jima after there. Very nicely done, can be a quick visit right off the highway(route 9)

Its a nice statue to see just off the 9 highway in Newington near the CCSU college. There is no bathroom or concessions here. it is definitely worth the trip!

This beautiful memorial is the only one of it's kind that can say it was built by Survivors of the Battle of Iwo Jima. They designed the park and raised all the funds themselves to build it. Althought similar to the one is Washington, it has many differences. It is built to remember the 6,821 American servicemen who were killed... More

This memorial lists all the people of connecticut who died in Iwo Jima. There is an eternal flame and some parking. It is not the crowded and we went on memorial day. We went here because the beach was packed. So if you want to visit a good memorial come here.
