Trolley tour

We took an hour trolley tour around Annapolis and were able to see this memorial. It is very well done in a beautiful setting high enough to overlook the bay and Annapolis.

Very good memorial to see. At the top area, it also overlooks the United States Naval Academy. Beautiful site. Must be able to walk up several steps.

Enjoyed the self guided tour of the Memorial while on the Trolley tour in Annapolis. 15 min. was enough time to see the memorial and appreciate the men who lost their lives for our freedom!

I've lived South of Annapolis my hole life so I never knew about this memorial or it's location until recently. I decided to check it out. Not only is it a great memorial honoring all that served in every theatre of WW II but it's a great view of down town Nap Town.

You'll appreciate the view of the Naval Academy as you get out of your car to visit this memorial. Names and dates are provided so you get a sense of history. Not walkable from harbor.
