  • Very nice memorial. Bad location. Right in the middle of a bunch of resturants and other businesses. Looks like not a lot of thought went into this project.  more »
  • This Memorial is really down, with the helicopters and the music of the Rolling Stones to.

  • Loved that you could walk up the handicapped accessible ramp to read all the names. A very well thought out memorial.  more »
