A beautiful memorial to our fallen hero's located on the downtown canal. It is even more moving to experience after sunset as it is an interactive display telling the stories of these hero's.

Any memorial that is dedicated to the brave soldiers who gave their lives to defend freedom is worth a visit. It is near the canal and museums so it is easy to stop by to pay respects.

You do have to use the interactive kiosk to understand the serious and amazing sacrifices made by our military men and women. Simply looking at the glass panes is not enough. And will all the fine museums around, it tends to get lost - and should not.

Start to walk past the panels etched with heroes' names and you'll hear voices from long ago, outilning the events that made them our nation's favorite sons. Thank you, soldiers, for your unequalled service to our country.

It's not as big as you think. Just location on the canal walk. Very short attraction but it's for a good cause. What you see in the pictures is exactly what it is. It's nice to stop by and look as you're going on a bike ride or walk through the canal walk.

Have been here several times. It can be a brief visit to get the ambiance or you can spend hours. Lots of other things to do in Indy, so I find myself going back several times to read and listen to the stories.

We happened on this memorial (on Indianapolis canal) after visiting the Eitlejorg Museum. It's a simple, elegant tribute that is worthy of a larger audience.

As the title says it is a SMALL oasis. Visist after dark if you can to see the memorial lit up. It is worth it. This is the only memorial to medal of honor recipients in the nation. Yes, Indy is very patriotic.

Small, but a nice area to stop and look at on the Canal. I wouldn't go just to see this display. If you are military or have someone you know who is named, then this would be great.
