    This is a fantastic way to remember the brave men and women of Kentucky who lost their lives in Vietnam. It's an incredibly moving memorial, and it's very well taken care of. This is well worth the stop if you're in the area.

    A local gem that is basically unknown! It's a giant sundial where each name of the fallen veteran is strategically placed so that the shadow of the sundial points to their name on the anniversary of their death! It's one of the largest granite memorials in the country! Just amazing!

    What an awesome experience. So much thought into this memorial in all aspects. The memorial makes a sun dial to tell the time and the month of the year with a shadow over the names of fallen Kentucky Veterans. Beautiful view of the capitol from the memorial site.
