The home of Wall South, the first permanent replica of the National Vietnam War Memorial. Founded in 1992 the Park has since grown and prospered. It now includes a WWI Memorial, a WWII Memorial, a Korean War Memorial, and a running series of plaques to honor local warriors who have fallen in the Global War on Terror. There is also a Purple Heart Memorial and a monument to the submarine lifeguards who rescued so many Navy pilots in WWII (including President George Herbert Walker Bash). Most recently, it is home to the Marine Corps Aviation Bell Tower, which has become a popular venue for local veteran's events and ceremonies. Our Park continues to grow. A Revolutionary War Memorial has been approved and will shortly join our other memorials. It will fill a gap of omission at the Park, honoring those whose sacrifice gave Americans a Nation worth defending. The next gap to be filled will be a memorial to honor the current generation of Americans who are fighting the Global War on Terror. Our community is steeped in military tradition and enriched with a strong military presence. The full range of service, sacrifice, duty and honor that comes with military service is amply illustrated in the example of our own citizens. This park is dedicated to the memories of those who sacrificed their lives in the defense of this nation.

A 1/2 reproduction of the DC memorial. It contains all the names of the servicemen and women who lost their lives on behalf of the US in Vietnam. A thank you that was a long time coming. It also contains memorials to other service people.

Husband and I stopped here on the way home. Beautiful memorial park. It's not very big but worth walking thru and it's next to a pond to walk around. Would definitely go back.

Came across this during a walk and was amazed - so beautiful in a small area. Was right before the 4th of July so flags everyone. My family is military and I really appreciate the heart and soul that was put into this park.

Definitely something to see. Reminds you of the sacrifices that have been made over the years. They have a site you can go to look up names on the Vietnam Memorial. Freedom isn't free.

I attended a military unit reunion, and we made a spur-of-the-moment decision to visit this attraction. All services, as well as all 20th Century conflicts were honored. I was moved to tears at the tributes, and I felt honored, proud, and grateful to have served in U.S. Armed Forces.
