“Deserves a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

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.

“Solemn Serious and Impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

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.

“Hushed voices, quiet recognition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

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 a nice memorial...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

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.
