My father is a WWII Veteran, and I a peacetime Vet. I don't think there could be a finer Memorial to honor both those who gave the "ultimate sacrifice", as well as for all military veterans. There are 5 inscribed Granite pedestals with wonderful quotes upon them, and these are surrounded by hundreds of paver bricks for peoples tributes to... More

Well designed and respectfully created to bring anyone who visits a little closer to the memory of those who have served our country so bravely. This monument is well worth stopping by to enjoy a quiet moment of silence. As a veteran myself, God saw it fit to spare me from the ultimate sacrifice. These men and women served their... More

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. I have two... More

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!
