  • Very moving memorial in a pretty park setting. As a tourist it was a very peaceful stop after the insanity of traveling Boston.
  • Thought provoking Memorial with outdoor audio buttons explaining different aspects of the war and honoring the veterans. Well worth the trip. Not far from the USS Constitution. Is an extensive Park with lots of granite Memorial benches.
