I must have visited the Memorial at least 25 times. Each time I read each letter on the stones. I have taken groups of high school students to the Memorial and they become silent immediately. The Memorial is a beautiful and serene location in the second largest city in New England.

Again another tour. I'm especially nostalgic over this memorial. Not really a history buff, but when its history that has taken part in my life time, or a fascination of a particular event, like WWII, John F. Kennedy and especially the Vietnam war, I take more interest. In our area we have a Vietnam memorial. But here, this one is... More

Poignant, peaceful and respectful; so glad that it is located in Worcester. There is always a breeze on that hill and it is a healthy walking atmosphere for many age groups.

Somber beautiful place to honor so many that never came home. Take the time to read and then reflect. It was also great to see the K9 memorial there

This was wonderful!! We go there off and on now.Some of the Large stones have letters that were written to family and friends. So perfect. You really get a feel for the man or woman that wrote them and what their family must have gone thru.

I would suggest packing a lunch, view the memorial and then have a picnic. Very touching memorial. Because the memorial is part of a water feature in the park, it offers stunning photo ops during sunset and sunrise.

I wasn't prepared to read the letters home from the boys in Vietnam. So normal, and yet when you realize those every day messages were their last, you don't take life and the little things for granted. Sweet letters. Tasteful, respectful tribute. Very peaceful setting. Bring Kleenex.

Letters written by veterans engraved on stone written to their families .Sadly,they did not make it home. Some letters so endearing brought tears to my eyes. Also, a memorial dedicated to service dogs.
