“Very Moving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

A beautiful memorial and cemetery. I have been to the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in Colleville-sur-Mer, Normandy, France, and The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl Crater in Honolulu, Hawaii, and they are all very similar as they are run by the same agency. Unless you are a World War 2 history buff you might not know that over 17000 servicemen died in the Phillipines and over 36000 were MIA. The Filipinos who fought with the US to save and then retake their homeland from the Japanese sustained terrible losses and this memorial is a fitting tribute to them.

“It's not about the dead soldiers but about what they did.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

My first visit here was in 1997 then again in 2007. The again in 2012. And for both visits, (the second one with my kids) I have found it to be a place to ponder on not only heroism, but also for a quiet time. I am not sure what the rules are now if it is open to the public. Anyway, I will go there tomorrow to find out.
