This is a very well presented and respectful monument. As a retired veteran I expect my fallen comrades to to be respected. I have visited Arlington as well as Punchbowl and this monument would not be out of place at either site.

This is a very nice memorial. Everyone will have some surnames they recognize on the list of the fallen. The acoustics inside the memorial are remarkable. At night the memorial is lit up in different colors. Very nice!

My mother and I passed the monument while visiting the Capital Sunday . Very emotional to see statues from different wars.
