What can you say about History, a must see for historians! There is a state park close by bearing the same name for all of your camping needs as well. Excellent area to have a vacation

I went to admire the bust and revisit the bricks we bought for our military family members. The bust welcomes all who drive north on Hwy 75. It is a great entrance to a forward moving community.

Can been seen from the highway but worth taking the access road & drive up to it. There are 5 flags flying representing each branch of the military. Also behind the monument is a Pioneer Village you can tour.

Didn't know this was here, saw it because we noticed it on a trip. Having just finished listening to "Killing Patton", we did appreciate this tribute to not only Eisenhower, but to all of our veterans

Not many people know that Denison is the birth place of this great general and president. This monument memorializes all members of the armed forces and is a beautiful and reverent place.
