Take time out to remember our loved ones. Looking at all the names makes you think about how many died so we could be free. Sad but beautiful.

This memorial is a perfect place to ride bikes to, next to the GOLD Star family memorial. The ride is over the Naval Academy bridge and has great views back onto the Naval Academy as well as visiting both memorials.

This memorial seemed easy to get to. I was not driving but could easily see the signs. There is a wonderful view overlooking the harbor from this peaceful memorial. Just drive to the top of the hill right behind the memorial and there is parking.

I was impressed with the layout and thought that went into this memorial. In many ways it feels like a "personalized" version of the large WWII memorial for US WWII vets in DC. The rock work is beautiful and the personalization (names of all the...More

This memorial had been updated over the years. The setting is beautiful and the monument is tastefully done. And the view of the Naval Academy across the Severn River is the best in the area. If one is passing by it is worth the stop....More

Nice spot to briefly get away from the crowds and take a minute to think about what really matters. Very nice view from the overlook

The memorial has a really good vantage point to see the Naval Academy and the Severn River area. As a historic site, it's a smallish monument to those who gave their lives for our country. Worth the time.

As stated above, this is a monument area with a wonderful view, but no museum, The WWII Museum in New Orleans is a good suggestion- you can probably contact them on-line and ask about donating your dad's "stuff".
