The monument has puts a lump in my throat. It has amazing detail. The museum is small, but packed with information and friendly helpful staff. Good little film they show frequently. There is an attached gift shop as well.

I did not visit the museum but did view the memorial and by chance was given a tour by the head of the Marine Military Academy. It was very interesting to hear about the history behind the memorial.
