Very worthwhile and a quick stop off of the highway. We attended the yearly memorial ceremony. It was exceptional, and appropriately crowded. The bagpipe music was stirring. The wall is a great memorial.

The park setting makes this a nice place to sit and read a book while reflecting on the sacrifices that too many good Americans have made so that you can.

I would've passed by this memorial on any ordinary day which is unfortunate. This, like many interesting landmarks in Iowa has been downplayed when it shouldn't be. It is a very nice memorial that more people should be made aware of.

Very surreal and honoring place to visit. This is one of my favorite places to visit, being the daughter, sister, wife and friend to numerous firefighters.

It is very impressive and a wonderful tribute to all Iowa firefighters. I loved the statue of the firefighter climbing up the ladder carrying a little child. The monument is handicap accessible. I would recommend everyone to visit the memorial and visitor center.

My husband knows two firefighters on the wall of the memorial. It is a wonderful tribute to those individuals who have served to save the lives of others.
