On a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean the tranquility is something you can feel, peaceful and beautiful. The area is pristine and groomed at all times. This is fitting resting site for our brave men and women.

A must see for every American. These men and women gave their lives for our freedom. It was a beautiful location and they were actually having a service for a fallen hero and it was emotional to see them fold the flag! Worth the trip!

Incredible view on San Diego downtown and Coronado.
The memorial itself is also very impressive. Endless rows of tombstones as often seen in movies.
When you are in San Diego, definitely take one hour to go there (15min drive from downtown, 30min stay and 15min back)!

There are thousands of head stones lined up perfectly. Beautiful area gives respect to soldiers that deserve it. A must see.
