I was very impressed with the size of the Memorial and also the artifact of the plane that they had at the memorial. They also have a gift shop that is sometimes open and sometimes closed. The information at the memorial was plentiful and impressive.

A beautiful location, serene and peaceful, evokes a sense of great respect and appreciation for all those who have served their country. Take time out to pay your respects and breath in the beautiful clean mountain air.

Pylons dedicated to service men/women of all military branches. Very impressive and educational. Small gift shop and very clean restrooms... It's a long way from the last ones and until the next ones! Stop!

Quiet ,understated and remote. A perfect place to respect those who have given so much. Free. Convenient to the highway with plenty of parking. Even saw a moose and calf near the parking lot.
