Such a tribute to our fighting men and women of the US Military. A small town with a military tribute makes it #1 in my book. Take time and read the displays. Nice monuments, makes you proud to be an American.

The pillars for each branch of the U.S. Military are a must see. When you turn around and look at the direction you came, you have a clear view of Denali. Beautiful place to stop. If there during the day, the little store is open...More

Very well done, reverent, informative memorial. We learned a lot about Alaska's contribution to US war efforts. Some very moving personal tributes at each branch of the service's memorial. Worth a stop for sure. Thank you to all of our service members... current and vets.

Exceptional memorial to veterans. Honors many who served and lost their lives in Alaska. Is just of the Parks Highway and has some lovely views of the mountain range.

Interesting panels with good information, and a rest-room stop. This is a good place to stop at for about 30 mins on the way back from Denali or Talkeetna.
