Although this is small in size it provides views to calm the sole and lift your heart. Located on the shoulder of 101 you can see Haynes Inlet, Horsfall area, the sand dunes, McCullogh bridge and the Pacific Ocean without getting lost.

The memorial is on the shore of an inlet at the southern end of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. It's easy to miss when you're driving along U.S. 101, although it's a wayside along that highway. It's a beautiful setting, with the water and sand dune views, and a beautiful tribute to veterans who sacrificed their lives for our... More

Good place for a convenient stop along 101. Nice setting. I wouldn't drive out of the way to visit this alone, but if you're coming into the area it's a nice place to stop and pay your respects.

Love reading the Veterans Memorial quotes and then sit and enjoy the sunset. Great place for a quick stop. :)

Even if you just pull in for a snack or to make a phone call (as I was this time), this lovely memorial is a pleasant place to stop. I appreciate the sentiments and the view and try to always leave a few dollars in the contribution box.

Local group did a great job putting together. It really services as a reminder and honors or Vet's. A few words of caution, when an event is held here be careful accessing the leaving the parking area, Hwy 101 traffic will not see ya when you stopped in the lane waiting to turn or pulling out! Also, the parking is... More

The memorial pull out is located right by the roadside on highway 101 by the river inlet and is a wonderful tribute to the Vets. Reading the inscriptions on the granite blocks and tributes on the paving blocks was quite moving. In the background you have a nice view of the McCullough memorial bridge crossing into North Bend . It's... More

This is a nice spot to pull off the highway and honor Veterans. It is right by the bay and on a nice day, beautiful.

We drove past and had to turn around to go back. The memorial with the bridge behind was stunning. A great tribute to those that served. Almost a shame where it is as few seem to stop and pause and think of those who gave

My father is a WWII Veteran, and I a peacetime Vet. I don't think there could be a finer Memorial to honor both those who gave the "ultimate sacrifice", as well as for all military veterans. There are 5 inscribed Granite pedestals with wonderful quotes upon them, and these are surrounded by hundreds of paver bricks for peoples tributes to... More
