“Gives a different perspective to San Diego”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

A short drive from the centre of town, this military cemetery is situated on Point Loma, looking east to San Diego and west over the Pacific.

It is a quiet and contemplative location. The cemetery is beautifully maintained and a fitting resting place for military personnel.

“God would choose this site for a second Heaven”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

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!

“Must see”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

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)!
