Owner description: The home of Wall South, the first permanent replica of the National Vietnam War Memorial. Founded in 1992 the Park has since grown and prospered. It now includes a WWI Memorial, a WWII Memorial, a Korean War Memorial, and a running series of plaques to honor local warriors who have fallen in the Global War on Terror. There is also a Purple Heart Memorial and a monument to the submarine lifeguards who rescued so many Navy pilots in WWII (including President George Herbert Walker Bash). Most recently, it is home to the Marine Corps Aviation Bell Tower, which has become a popular venue for local veteran's events and ceremonies. Our Park continues to grow. A Revolutionary War Memorial has been approved and will shortly join our other memorials. It will fill a gap of omission at the Park, honoring those whose sacrifice gave Americans a Nation worth defending. The next gap to be filled will be a memorial to honor the current generation of Americans who are fighting the Global War on Terror. Our community is steeped in military tradition and enriched with a strong military presence. The full range of service, sacrifice, duty and honor that comes with military service is amply illustrated in the example of our own citizens. This park is dedicated to the memories of those who sacrificed their lives in the defense of this nation.

Since I have not had the opportunity to see the original Viet Nam Memorial, I still felt very moved emotionally. This park gave homeage to all wars veterans and makes one honored to walk in its park.

Not as impressive as the memorials in Washington D.C. but a great smaller option without the travel and crowds. Computer is still not working for the wall. Clean park with easy parking. Nice place to visit.

Nice, clean, newer park out in the open. Walk a path to separate memorials of the Korean, WW1, WW11, Veitnam, and War on Terrorism. Interesting displays. Can go across the road to see another memorial to children and families.

Smaller replica of Wall South but the computer us broken. If you plan to go and look for someone's name, look up the person's name location prior to going by looking on the Wall South's site -http://www.pensacolawallsouth.org/home.html or the full sized wall's site - http://thewall-usa.com/
