  • Not frequently visited but worth the stop if nearby. The letters are very poignant and beautiful. Second time we have stopped there and we are usually alone at the memorial.  more »
  • We felt it was very powerful as the memorial is made up of letters home. You are reading he words of the soldier. Very powerful.  more »

  • Perfect mixture of concrete and water. Located on the coast of East river surrounded by corporate giants it is quite spectacular. Just seating there is like finding peace with in u.
  • Nice place to get food from food cart and eat. And enjoy watching the water helicopter view. Good place
  • Happy Memorial Day. Thanks for the sacrifices of our soldiers and their families for giving so much so selflessly of themselves for.our brighter tomorrow's. God Bless America. Thank you to my brother ... Herminio N. Sempre Fi. We love you!
  • It's good to have a space where you can just sit and do nothing for a few minutes. This is one of those spaces and is located in an area full of buildings. And it's near the water, if you like to see more of nature.
  • It's almost impossible to not give these type memorials a five or you look "unpatriotic". This one is not nearly as busy as some of the others, neat looking. Definitely makes you realize the toll that this war took.
