A great tribute to those who lost their lives for me and my generation. My visit was a part of mission I had been planning over 3 years. This was one location on our tour. Thank you for your sacrifice.

Take the time to read the plaques on this memorial - there are some surprising ones. The memorial is in a wonderful location in the center of town.
