We walked to the Tobin Performance Arts Center and this was near by. The space is small yet the sculpture is very powerful and moving. Nice courtyard with terraces, peaceful and solemn. Nice place to reflect for a few moments.

As a Vietnam veteran, I usually stop to see all memorial in my travels. I thank San Antonio for having this memorial as many town do not have one. This huger than life statue really gets to a veteran.
