This is a very simple, but awe inspiring monument. One of my favorite. Just too bad it is not in a more public area as it is isolated in an industrial area, but well worth the visit.

Nice clean park near the pipelines. You can contribute if you want or just read the reasoning behind the way the walls are made up. Takes about 10 minutes to visit. Saw a visitor center it was closed.

We stopped by to find my grandfather's and great-uncle's names on the wall. A nice memorial and a tribute to those who served.

I went to visit this memorial because I enjoy these things and I had a very bad experience there. After a few minutes, the MP's from the tank plant come racing down to me and yelled at me for taking pictures. I understand that it...More
