“Solemn Serious and Impressive”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

You do have to use the interactive kiosk to understand the serious and amazing sacrifices made by our military men and women. Simply looking at the glass panes is not enough. And will all the fine museums around, it tends to get lost - and should not.

“Hushed voices, quiet recognition”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Start to walk past the panels etched with heroes' names and you'll hear voices from long ago, outilning the events that made them our nation's favorite sons. Thank you, soldiers, for your unequalled service to our country.

“It's a nice memorial...”
Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

It's not as big as you think. Just location on the canal walk. Very short attraction but it's for a good cause. What you see in the pictures is exactly what it is. It's nice to stop by and look as you're going on a bike ride or walk through the canal walk.

“Must see to appreciate”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Have been here several times. It can be a brief visit to get the ambiance or you can spend hours. Lots of other things to do in Indy, so I find myself going back several times to read and listen to the stories.
