Very moving memorial. Full list of Heroes from the beginning of America till present. The stories that play throughout the day are a great way to help all understand their stories.

This is along the canal walk, and worth a stop. It was a stop along the Urban Scavenger Hunt, and what’s interesting about it is it is for multiple wars, not just a single war. It’s also a interesting design for a memorial.

Very nice memorial! Very hard to read the name in the sun when we went. I believe at night it has lights shining on it from the bottom view .

Across from the Indiana State Museum is a unique memorial to all the medal of honor recipients of the US military over the years. Especially interesting is the lighting of the glass panels at night.

I liked walking through this Memorial. Honor all the Medal of Honor recipients. Along the Canal, behind the Indiana State Museum. Worth a walk-thru to honor these people.
