The monument is in the middle of a traffic circle so the visit was very brief. Very visually appealing. Glad to see our vets honored.

Unable to walk to the monument. It's in the middle of a traffic circle. It is well kept and it's nice to know that we Veteran's still have a monument that doesn't offend anyone.

This is one side of the entrance to downtown shops and a few hundred feet from the covered bridge. It's an easy drive by but one should spend a little time to remember those they honor.
