This is not a time consuming attraction. There isn't much parking, but not many people visit the site at one time. If you wish to reflect upon the country's POWs and MIAs, the site will offer a moment to remember these heroes

Quiet place to remember our heroes - POW & MIA. There's a few plaques and small monuments. The Oceana air base is behind the memorial, and it's nice to see and hear the jets taking off - remembering the price of our freedom.

If you're not paying attention, you'll drive right by it. The flame is burning bright and has a beautiful story behind it. There is plaque that tells you the history of the flame.

The flame stays lit!! It was such a great experience and had to see in homage to my grandfather. Vietnam Vet. We loved the greenery and how well kept it was. Spent some alone time there.

This a place of respect and wonderment of where the MIA men are at today. We also sat a shaded bench to watch the jets take off . The sound of freedom was thunderously screaming FREEDOM
