This is a granite wall, circular in shape, with etchings on both sides, depicting the battles and wars our nation has fought, from the Civil War to Desert Storm. It is truly a work of art. My only regret in seeing such a masterpiece is that every state should do this in remembrance of the people who have given everything... More

We were so impressed with this monument! I had read about it, but the size of it and the relief pictures tell a bigger story than I had expected. It is a moving tribute to those who have fought in ALL wars, as Americans.

If you come to Rochester, do go and see the wall and statues. The did a amazing job of this tribute to those who gave all. I have been to Washington DC and seen the War wall there. This is just amazing what they have done here.

This incredible Veterans Memorial commemorates the individuals who gave their life from the time Minnesota became a state to present day's wars. It is one of the largest privately funded veterans monuments I've ever seen. The monument was totally funded by donations. The planning and workmanship that was devoted to this project is incredible. This is a monument that shows... More
