We enjoyed this walking path with an engraved timeline of important military, political and historic events that impacted the United States. This park is best for when you have the time to read the timeline.

This memorial would be of interest to anyone who is interested in the history of the United States. It provides a time line along with information about the wars. There is a lot of reading, so take your time and enjoy the walk.

A very peaceful place honoring veterans from WW1&2, Korean & Vietnam wars. As you walk, the plaques tell the stories, while the bricks at your feet name the veterans who served, and in some cases, gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Walking through the exhibit with my daughter was moving and heart wrenching. A must see. Sitting at each exhibit, reading the information, imagining the time and place and what the soldiers endured... filled my heart with sadness and respect.

This is an excellent experience. It's bigger than we expected. We took some friends there from Florida and they were very impressed. Took me back to my tour in Viet Nam.

This should be visited by every veteran who passes through Northwest Indiana, preferably with family/friends as it can be overwhelming. A forgone conclusion is a visit to VFW Post 6448 in Dyer or American Legion Post 697 in Lansing but we managed to try a...More
