We walked to the Tobin Performance Arts Center and this was near by. The space is small yet the sculpture is very powerful and moving. Nice courtyard with terraces, peaceful and solemn. Nice place to reflect for a few moments.

I have walked past this memorial several times, but never took the time to seriously look at it. This is a beautiful tribute to those brave men and women who served in a war without recognition.

As a Vietnam veteran, I usually stop to see all memorial in my travels. I thank San Antonio for having this memorial as many town do not have one. This huger than life statue really gets to a veteran.

My husband and I are Army veterans and served in medical units. This memorial is the first full size memorial that we have seen that depicts the role of the medic helping a fallen comrade. It is an amazing representation and touched both of us.

I took my three children here for a visit. They learned so much in the short amount of time we were there. Powerful statues that told stories of our history

Very nicely done. There was a gentleman playing bag pipes while we were there. Such a nice tribute. We were filled with mixed emotions being here.
