“A beautiful tribute to Veterans in a scenic setting”

David Dewett Veterans Memorial
Reviewed 29 May 2016

The memorial is on the shore of an inlet at the southern end of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. It's easy to miss when you're driving along U.S. 101, although it's a wayside along that highway. It's a beautiful setting, with the water and sand dune views, and a beautiful tribute to veterans who sacrificed their lives for our country. It's also a pleasant place to relax and enjoy the sunset over the dunes.

Good place for a convenient stop along 101. Nice setting. I wouldn't drive out of the way to visit this alone, but if you're coming into the area it's a nice place to stop and pay your respects.

Even if you just pull in for a snack or to make a phone call (as I was this time), this lovely memorial is a pleasant place to stop. I appreciate the sentiments and the view and try to always leave a few dollars in the contribution box.

Local group did a great job putting together. It really services as a reminder and honors or Vet's.

A few words of caution, when an event is held here be careful accessing the leaving the parking area, Hwy 101 traffic will not see ya when you stopped in the lane waiting to turn or pulling out! Also, the parking is limited and cars end up parking on the Hwy 101 shoulders. Watch out to walkers crossing the Hwy!
