I like to go here every now and then to remind myself of what a great community and country we have. This monument proves just that and more. I absolutely love it, and how it reminds me of my father.

This is a very simple, but awe inspiring monument. One of my favorite. Just too bad it is not in a more public area as it is isolated in an industrial area, but well worth the visit.

Nice clean park near the pipelines. You can contribute if you want or just read the reasoning behind the way the walls are made up. Takes about 10 minutes to visit. Saw a visitor center it was closed.
