This memorial is set in front of the football stadium in Jacksonville. Easy to access - except on game day - it is an impressive black granite structure. Good tribute and worth spending a short while there while in the area.

Getting there was odd to say the least, this memorial is located in the middle of a parking lot. That being said, the memorial was exquisite. Beautiful black granite made the lettering really stand out. The eternal flame was beautiful but I could have done without the council member names on it, it is after all a memorial for Veterans...

We were so impressed with this wall. We spent quite a bit of time in that area reading all the stuff.

The group we were with on a recent stay in Jacksonville, had, as one of its activities, a bus tour of Jacksonville. Since our group consisted of veterans(WW2 through Vietnam), we were taken to this wall. Our tour guides were knowledgeable about the history of the creation of the wall, as well as some of the names on the wall.... More

The memorial is located by the football stadium. Thankfully with GPS we were able to find it. Very nice memorial for those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedoms.

A nice memorial to those who have sacrificed their lives defending our great nation. The memorial wall is located next to the football stadium downtown. It can be difficult to find, there are no signs anywhere giving directions.

Thank you to all the Veterans who served and sacrificed the ultimate price of giving their lives for this country. I regret not serving in the military myself at the time and would do so now if it were possible. God bless you all!

Always a moving tribute to see those who have served and given their lives for our freedom. It was surprising to see how many names there are just in this one county. Thanks for the nice tribute and excellent maintenance of the site. Worth 30-60 minutes to reflect upon our good fortune as americans.

Our first visit to the cemetery and Memorial Wall. It a "must" see -- very solemn, touching and makes one so very proud of those who have given their all for their Country.
