This memorial had been updated over the years. The setting is beautiful and the monument is tastefully done. And the view of the Naval Academy across the Severn River is the best in the area. If one is passing by it is worth the stop....More

The memorial has a really good vantage point to see the Naval Academy and the Severn River area. As a historic site, it's a smallish monument to those who gave their lives for our country. Worth the time.

Tucked away between lanes of traffic is a amazing tribute to the servicemen and servicewomen who went to war for us. The memorial is very moving and there are very informative descriptions of key aspects of the history of the War.

The memorial gives you a perspective on the amount of lives lost during the war. It also provides a moving view back over the river at the Naval Academy! Very nicely done!!

As stated above, this is a monument area with a wonderful view, but no museum, The WWII Museum in New Orleans is a good suggestion- you can probably contact them on-line and ask about donating your dad's "stuff".
