There are a collection of memorials that have ageless meaning and emotional impact. Seeing it at night is special.

My dad loved seeing the memorial and our tour guide did an excellent job explaining the thoughtfulness behind the building of it. It is well made and in a beautiful park just near the waterfront. Well worth a visit just for the scenery.

I couldn't believe the number of names here and it does make you think. A few people were also looking for names that they knew which made it all the more real. Glad we did go here.

From a distance, there's a slim dark elliptical stone wall. However, approach and you will find the walls filled with the names of young service personnel that gave their lives between 1959 and 1975. As a child growing up, I didn't realise that the Vietnam...More

If you are just looking at this one memorial it will not take more than 20-30 minutes. However the memorials are all very close and in walking distance.
