This memorial was extensive, impressive, and so well presented. There were so many representations, I could have spent literally hours looking around. The K9 memorial moved me, as well as the beautiful McFarland memorial. Of course, the 'Arizona' is such a huge part of our...More

I love that this park memorializes many groups of people (and even police dogs) giving each one an amazing amount of respect.

The Memorial Plaza is right next to the state Capitol complex. It is a very significant park containing no less than 33 Memorial settings. Walking through this large park is an education all of its own. It is an excellent review of who and what...More

It's like a mini version of the National Memorial at the U.S. Capital. It's very well laid out with the war & service memorials through out the park. I didn't get to stop at all of them. It's spread out, and we didn't have a...More
