  • Second grade race for my grandson. First time visiting the venue. Very nice place to visit
  • 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.
  • What a great Veteran's Day we experienced at the memorial.
  • 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!
  • Its very moving to see how the sun dial goes over the deceased name at the time of death.
