This should be on everyone's "check this out" list. Very interesting and educational. Gives a reminder of our service men and woman. Every American needs these reminders.

This is a beautiful monument to those who have served our country. The various scenes depicted were especially moving. It's definitely worth visiting while you're on the boardwalk.

A well done memorial that brings back good memories and the smell of JP5. This memorial only requires a few minutes of your time when you're in the area.
