This small memorial park is dedicated to veterans and has ample parking and a spectacular view out over the bay. It's located on the edge of a small cliff and there are no fences so it's not a good place for small children.

Thoughtful time spent reading names/dates. Glad my brother-in-law and nephews still with us...but so many gave their all in service.

Just before entering North Bend Coos Bay from the North 101 is this memorial. Since so many US personel have been killed wounded or mia. I think there is a lack of memorials. IN Britain every village has memorials as young men who grew up...More

If it wasn’t right next to the highway, we would’ve have not known about it or stopped. Location is everything and so we stopped and checked it out. It is a nice memorial set in beautiful scenery. It’s worth the stop to stretch your legs...More

It's immediately adjacent to Highway 101, so it is a quick and easy stop -- and well worth a few minutes of your time. It's a very nice idea to have this kind of veterans memorial in plain sight, instead of off the beaten path....More

Stopped here on 08/02. The memorial is located just north of the junction to Horsefall Beach, on the westside of the 101. It is worth your time to stop and observe the tributes in stone. The backdrop is breathtaking, McCullough Bridge and Coos Bay to...More

Although this is small in size it provides views to calm the sole and lift your heart. Located on the shoulder of 101 you can see Haynes Inlet, Horsfall area, the sand dunes, McCullogh bridge and the Pacific Ocean without getting lost.

The memorial is on the shore of an inlet at the southern end of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. It's easy to miss when you're driving along U.S. 101, although it's a wayside along that highway. It's a beautiful setting, with the water and...More
