I always enjoy stopping by this rest stop on my way to Lexington NC. It is a very easy walk or roll. It is very humbling to stand and think about my fellow veterans that gave their lives for us. Respect

Stop at the rest area and walk 900 feet. There's a beautiful stream running under the small bridge. Bubbling brook. Then walk towards the flags. Then it opens into a beautiful courtyard. There is a wall of names and benches under trees. Check it out!

Really neat having this memorial off a rest stop on I85. Really great tribute to those vets in North Carolina. Grounds are well taken care of and a must see when traveling this area. A Small, but peaceful tribute. Well Done
