This monument was heartfelt since it was my generation's conflict. People left all types of mementos at the base; letters, pictures, hats, flags. Everything is being kept for future expansion. I was there both during the day solo and at night on a tour. Guides are very knowledgeable and give you more information than you would be able to get on your own. My tour guide told us of a personal experience that she observed of a vet and is fallen buddy.
