This is a beautifully designed memorial in a fantastic place. The bridge, bay and dunes add to the dignity of the site. When the tide is out, the flats teem with sea birds. It is a place of peace to stop after driving, especially if it has been a long trip.

This was a nice tribute to Vietnam Vets and in a great location. It is one on the best places to stop and admire the Coos Bay Bridge which is fantastic. On the other side is a sweet view of the huge sand dunes in the area. They did a nice job with monuments and flowers here.

I heard the story about how this site happened. . . . . . . .An idea of local veterans, constructed with volunteer help, material and services from locate business and donations for many, many folks near and far. The site brings honor to all veterans, past and present.

On a busy stretch of Highway 101, this is a welcome respite. A lovely spot, overlooking the McCullough Bridge and Coos Bay, the memorial is beautifully situated. The brick pavers bear the names/dates/branch of service of many men and women who have served or are serving our country. The granite walls are carved with meaningful, soulful quotations.

Takes time, money, effort and dedication to jump through all the hoops necessary to erect a memorial like this beside a major highway. For many of us, most of them are worth at least a brief stop - this one certainly is!

This is a small Veterans Memorial right on Highway 101, just north of the bridge going into North Bend. There is a nice parking lot, and a very good and well maintained memorial for Veterans. The location is very good, with a great view of the bay, right on the edge of the water.

This memorial is a bit off the beaten path but not obscure. However, it has a unique perspective in that it remembers veterans through the statements made by past presidents and leaders. It also provides an honorary means through purchaseing bricks. The statements are inscribed in marble. A great place to remember the men and women who have served.

Be careful if you are headed north. Make sure and signal way ahead of time. You will see the flags. Headed south it sneers up on you but you don't have to worry about crossing 101 summer traffic.
