It is well lighted with sound.... More

A nice memorial, however names are difficult to read. If you didn't know to look for this place you might miss it. An interactive phone app to look up names and read their story would be nice.

This is one memorial that I mistook for a sculpture-period. It is placed along the canal and is a wonderful way to honor those who gave their lives for our freedom.
